Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Boston Goes Searching For A Win Against Baltimore

While the Red Sox managed to snap their three-game losing streak with a tie against the Yankees Thursday night, they're still looking for that elusive win. Friday, they'll have their shot against the Baltimore Orioles as they head to Sarasota for an afternoon match. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. EST, with the MASN broadcast being offered for free on MLB.TV.

After fielding an almost completely full lineup against the Yankees, Bobby Valentine has drawn up a lineup comprised almost entirely of replacements for the Baltimore game. They'll have to provide some backup for Clay Buchholz, who has overcome some shaky fastball control early on to become one of Boston's best starters so far this spring. It's a good sign for the young starter returning from injury--hopefully he'll keep on rolling right through to April.

The Orioles, meanwhile, have tabbed Jason Hammel as their starting pitcher. The former Colorado Rockie allowed a 4.76 ERA in 27 starts last year.
