Sox: 3 ESPN Sunday games in 2 months

The Red Sox will appear on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" three times in the season's first two months, according to the schedule released by ESPN Wednesday morning.

Two of the games will be home games: April 20 against the Orioles and May 18 against the Tigers. Boston's first appearance on Sunday night will be April 13 in New York against the Yankees. The Sunday night game against the Orioles is scheduled to start at 7:05, an hour earlier than the usual 8:05 start because the Sox and Orioles are scheduled to play the next day at 11:05 in the annual Patriots Day game.

Former Sox pitcher Curt Schilling will be making his debut as an analyst for "Sunday Night Baseball," joining former Phillies teammate John Kruk and play-by-play man Dan Shulman in the booth. In addition, BC grad Jon Sciambi and his partner Chris Singleton return for their fourth season of "Sunday Night Baseball" on ESPN Radio.
