Two former aces will look to try and get back on track tonight when they square off in a battle in one of baseball’s most stories rivalries.

Tim Lincecum is coming off a disastrous 2012 campaign for the Giants, albeit one that didn’t preclude his team from winning the World Series. Josh Beckett was shipped out of Boston for the sunny skies of Los Angeles last season and wound up pitching respectably for the Dodgers. Can either pitcher reclaim their past glory? We’ll find out the answer, beginning tonight.
