Picayune’s T.J. House goes in search of his first Major League win tonight. But his third start for the Cleveland Indians will be much different from his first two.

Not only will House be making his home debut as a starter, but he will be facing the defending World Series champions as well.

The Indians are slated to face the Boston Red Sox tonight at Progressive Field in Cleveland. House is expected to face off with another hurler from down south, as Jake Peavy is scheduled to take the mound for the Red Sox.
