Rays vs. Red Sox, 2013 ALDS Game 2: Time, TV schedule, starting pitchers and more

Ronald Martinez

Saturday is a new day for the Rays, who were blasted by the Red Sox in Game 1. Tune in to find out if they can recover.

One good thing about the everyday nature of baseball's regular season is that bad losses don't get the opportunity to linger.

That's not always the case in the postseason, but the Tampa Bay Rays are fortunate enough to get back on the field on Saturday after a 12-2 clobbering at the hands of the Boston Red Sox on Friday in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

Rays ace David Price will take the hill against John Lackey, who had a solid season for the Red Sox after struggling mightily in 2012, in Game 2. Coverage of the game can be found on TBS and Postseason.tv at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Price is coming off of a complete game against the Texas Rangers in the AL Tiebreaker. He allowed two runs on seven hits and got stronger as the game wore on. The reigning AL Cy Young winner posted a 2.48 ERA with 30 strikeouts and only three walks in 32⅔ innings against the Sox this season.

Lackey, whose ERA this season was almost two full runs fewer than the mark he posted in 2011, allowed nine runs on 19 hits in 10 innings spanning two starts against the Rays during the regular season.
