ST. PETERSBURG -- Two weeks ago, the Red Sox changed a Saturday game from night to day so that fans could watch the Bruins play in the Stanley Cup Final. Now that the Bruins have won the Cup, the Sox are making another change this Saturday.

With the B's holding a victory parade at 11 a.m. ET, the Red Sox have moved the time of their game against the Brewers from 1:10 p.m. to 7:10 p.m.

The time change was made at the request of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and city officials to minimize congestion caused by the large crowds expected for the two events.

Now, fans will be able to watch both events, either live or on television.

The Red Sox will host the Bruins in a ceremony prior to Sunday's 1:35 p.m. game against the Brewers.
