Today's lineup: Red Sox-Rays

4/14/2013

Here's today's lineup for Red Sox-Rays at Fenway (Clay Buchholz vs. Alex Cobb):

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

Shane Victorino, RF

Dustin Pedroia, 2B

Mike Napoli, 1B

Daniel Nava, DH

Will Middlebrooks, 3B

Stephen Drew, SS

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

Jackie Bradley Jr., LF

This is the first time this season that Nava has hit in the 5-hole, with manager John Farrell saying he wanted to slide a left-handed bat between the two righties. He also acknowledged that he wanted to break up a 4-5-6 (Napoli, Middlebrooks, Saltalamacchia) that had combined to whiff 36 times in 107 at-bats.
