(SportsNetwork.com) - Still in search of their first home win of the season, the Boston Red Sox welcome the Texas Rangers to Fenway Park Monday for the opener of a three-game set. The game can be seen live on TSN2 starting at 7:00pm et/4:00 pm pt. Texas avoided a series sweep at Tampa Bay on Sunday thanks largely to Yu Darvish, who blanked the Rays for a 3-0 victory in his season debut. A stiff neck forced Darvish to skip his scheduled opening day start, but he was downright nasty on Sunday with six strikeouts and a walk in seven shutout innings. In the process, he also surpassed Kerry Wood to become the fastest player in MLB history to reach 500 career strikeouts. Elvis Andrus went deep in the eighth inning for only the Rangers second home run of the season, and closer Joakim Soria retired the side in order in the ninth for his first save since Sept. 11, 2011. Meanwhile, Boston is looking to get back on track after being swept by the Milwaukee Brewers at home over the weekend. The Red Sox had not lost an interleague series in their previous 12 tries. "Weve had a difficult time bunching hits together," manager John Farrell said. "Were doing our damnedest, I know that, to try to build an inning, to try to hit to the situation. At some point, you credit the quality of pitches made in key spots by the opposing pitcher." Despite Bostons struggles over the weekend, Rangers manager Ron Washington knows his team faces a tough test in this series. "Theyre still nine tough innings there," Washington said. "I just hope we can pitch, get some hits, put some runs on the board and win some ballgames." Making the start for Boston is John Lackey, and the former Angels hurler will face Texas for the 39th time in his career. However, the right-hander has an unsightly 6.01 ERA for his career against Texas, his highest ERA against any American League team. For Texas, Tanner Scheppers looks to rebound after getting tagged for seven runs in just four innings against Philadelphia on opening day. That start was the first of Scheppers big league career, as he got the nod in place of an injured Darvish. The Rangers boast a .674 winning percentage against Boston since 2009, the best percentage of any Red Sox foe in that span. This will be the Rangers only trip to Fenway this season.

Tortorella also failed to beat former Canucks and current New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault in two meetings a season ago. New Vancouver bench boss Willie Desjardins hopes for better luck on Saturday night when his club plays host to the Rangers. Vigneault led the Canucks to 30-or-more wins in six straight seasons before the lockout-shortened campaign ended that streak in 2013. He also got Vancouver to within one win of the franchises first Stanley Cup title in the spring of 2011, only to lose a home Game 7 to the Bruins. Vancouver still made the playoffs under Vigneault in 2013, but was swept out of the first round and the early exit cost the coach his job. The Canucks opted to replace him with Tortorella after he had been let go by the Rangers, but Vancouver missed the playoffs and Tortorellas style seemed to clash with many on the Canucks roster. Vigneault, meanwhile, saw his Rangers beat the Canucks twice last regular season, extending their series winning streak to four straight, and New York reached the Stanley Cup Finals, where it lost in five games to the Los Angeles Kings. While New York sits fourth in the Metropolitan Division, three points behind third-place Washington, Vancouver is behind only Anaheim in the Pacific Division and is clicking under Desjardins, who was hired to replace Tortorella on June 23. Desjardins will look for his club to pick up the pace in the start of a four- game homestand as the Canucks return to Vancouver following a 3-3-1 road trip.dddddddddddd. They lost the final three games of the trek, including Tuesdays 3-1 decision in Montreal. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots in the loss and Derek Dorsetts second-period short-handed goal was the lone offense for the Canucks. It was the clubs fourth short-handed tally of the season. Its not an excuse. You have to play at another level when youre on a long road trip as we are, Miller said. We were definitely playing like were at the end, but we competed hard. Im just sorry we couldnt stretch it into overtime, but thats the way it goes. The Rangers come in rested as well, having been out of action since a 4-3 victory at home over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday. It was an eventful game for Blueshirts defenseman Kevin Klein, who netted the winning goal with 1:15 to go in overtime, putting him a shot from the high slot and through a screen. I just tried to shoot it far side and it managed to go in. Im happy for that one, said Klein, who has three game-winning goals among his career-high six tallies this season. Earlier in the game, Klein suffered a cut to his left ear on a high stick from Penguins forward Zach Sill and had to get 13 stitches to re-attach the upper part of his ear. J.T. Miller, Kevin Hayes and Rick Nash all scored for the Rangers, who snapped a two-game slide ahead of tonights opener of a four-game road trip. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 32 shots in the win. Forward Chris Kreider did not play on Monday due to a neck injury.
