Slated to take the hill for the Sox in game one is Clay Buchholz, who will be relieved by former Detroit Tiger Rick Porcello for a pair of frames, while lefty prospect Eduardo red soxRodriguez will get the next two innings. In all, the game will be seven innings— as it is technically speaking a college doubleheader.

For the later game, the contest against BC, Wade Miley will be taking the hill who will be relieved by any mix of the following depending on who pitches in the early game: Zeke Spruill, Dana Eveland, Anthony Varvaro and Mitchell Boggs.

Fans who are expecting to see big time college pitchers on Tuesday are out of luck. After all, it is an exhibition so, they cannot afford to burnout arms for a game that does not effect the standings.

In the past, a few college players have reached local celebrity status with strong performances in the game. Last year on Northeastern, starting pitcher James Mulry struck out both David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia. The year before that, Aaron Barbosa made a diving catch in the outfield and collected a hit. Looking back to 2007, Johnny Ayers smacked a leadoff hit off Japanese sensation Daisuke Matsuzaka.

College baseball is not as competitive around here as it may be down south and most of the players most likely will not be going pro.

“It’s probably one of the biggest thrills they’ll have on the field,” Joshua Kummins of New England Baseball Journal added.

Players to look out for on Boston College include Blake Butera, Chris Shaw, Gabriel Hernandez, Donovan Casey and John Gorman (who the Red Sox previously drafted). On Northeastern, take a lookout for Brian Christian, Aaron Civale, Pat Madigan, Rob Fonseca and Dustin Hunt. Not to mention the Northeastern manager is the brother of big league Hall of Famer Tom Glavine.
