TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Cloudy with a slight chance of rain. Temperatures in the 70s. Wind blowing right to left.

UMPIRES: HP Mark Lollo, 1B Tim Tschida, 2B Tim Timmons, 3B Manny Gonzalez

SOX PEN: Two former Yankees, Ross Ohlendorf and Mark Melancon, are both scheduled to pitch for the Red Sox tonight. LHP Jesse Carlson and RHP Scott Atchison are also scheduled to pitch.

SOUNDS FAMILIAR: While CC Sabathia was pitching in a minor league game in Tampa, Josh Beckett spent his afternoon pitchingin a minor league game in Fort Myers. Beckett also threw six innings. Team’s usually don’t like to have their starting pitchers face division teams late in spring training.

NEW PARK: The Red Sox new spring complex is actually called Fenway South. It has the same diminisions as Fenway Park in Boston and holds roughly 9,900 fans.

UPDATE, 7:16 p.m.: Warren works a 1-2-3 first inning getting through Ellsbury, Pedroia and Youkilis.

UPDATE, 7:37 p.m.: Warren looks pretty sharp through two scoreless. He’s allowed two singles, one on a ground ball that glanced off his own glove, and one on a sharp single to left-center (call it even because another linedrive was caught by Brett Gardner). He just got Kelly Shoppach to fly out, stranding runners at the corners in the second. It’s still a scoreless game after two.

UPDATE, 7:51 p.m.: Another 1-2-3 inning for Warren, capping the inning with a strikeout of Pedroia, who swung at a pitch that ultimately hit him. He’s out of the game.

UPDATE, 8:00 p.m.: Leadoff single by Gardner, RBI triple by Granderson, RBI single by Jones. It’s a 2-0 Yankees lead in the fourth. Pedroia, by the way, was pulled with a bruised forearm.

UPDATE, 8:06 p.m.: Doug Bernier really can do some things on defense. That’s a fine play up the middle to get Youkilis for the first out of the bottom of the fourth.

UPDATE, 8:11 p.m.: Quite an outing from Warren through four scoreless, now it’s Ross Ohlendorf on the mound for the Red Sox in the fifth. Laird leads off with a double off him.

UPDATE, 8:13 p.m.: Jose Gil just keeps getting hits. He singled to right to put runners at the corners, still with no outs.

UPDATE, 8:34 p.m.: Warren is finished after four scoreless, and Dellin Betances has come out of the bullpen with a strikeout and a fly out against his first two hitters.
