Boston Red Sox (83-58) @ Texas Rangers (70-73)
Paul Byrd (10-11, 4.58) @ Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 2.25)

TV: NESN RADIO: WRKO 680, SBN 1150

GAME NOTES: Byrd, 7-1 since July 21, will face Brandon McCarthy, the Rangers’ return for John Danks. Returning from Tommy John surgery, McCarthy’s had some recent work with Nolan Ryan and will look to give the Rangers a series win. Can Paul Byrd stop him? It’s Byrd’s first start against the Rangers this year, and this is McCarthy’s introduction to the 2008 AL East.
