Red Sox Vs. Cubs: Boston Looking For Series Win In Prime Time

Having split their series with the Chicago Cubs, the Boston Red Sox will go for the best out of three on Sunday night. A win would put the Red Sox back at .500, notched at 33-33, for the first time since falling below that mark a week ago.

Josh Beckett was supposed to make Sunday's start, but he ended up on the disabled list with a shoulder problem. Starting instead is Franklin Morales (0-1, 3.04 ERA), making his first appearance of the season.

Opposing Morales will be Paul Maholm (4-5, 4.91 ERA). The left-hander has experienced more downs than ups in his first season with the Cubs. He has not picked up a win since May 9, thanks in part to anemic support from his team. Maholm has given up 10 earned runs in his last three starts.

The game starts at 8 p.m. Eastern, and will be seen nationally on ESPN.
