The second game of tonight's day-night doubleheader between the Red Sox and Tigers will be shown locally after all.
NESN announced that ESPN has agreed to waive the blackout of the game, which is a makeup of last night's rainout.
According to the terms of ESPN's contract with Major League Baseball, all Sunday night games on other networks must be blacked out because of the ESPN game of the week, unless the network grants a waiver, which it did, allowing NESN to air the game.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
