ANAHEIM -- The Red Sox have lined up their first three pitchers coming out of the All-Star break, with the starter in the fourth game still to be determined. Wade Miley will get the start in the series opener against the Angels Friday night, going up against C.J. Wilson. The Sox lefty dominated in his only previous start against Los Angeles this season, allowing just one run on four hits over eight innings back on May 24. Rick Porcello goes up against Garrett Richards in the series' second game, Saturday, with Eduardo Rodriguez going in Game 3 vs. Hector Santiago. It isn't yet known who will start for either team in the series finale Monday night, with Brian Johnson slated to pitch either that game or Tuesday in Houston. It is uncertain who would fill out the rotation, with Red Sox manager John Farrell reporting Justin Masterson is remaining in the bullpen. The schedule will give both Porcello and Rodriguez extra rest, with the righty pitching more than a week ago, July 9, and the rookie southpaw last throwing July 11. Miley pitched in the Red Sox' final game before the All-Star break, July 12.
