Red Sox Lineup
After winning and scoring six runs on 10 hits on Friday, the Red Sox lineup doesn't have many changes to it.
Jackie Bradley Jr. has moved up in the lineup and will bat seventh in front of second baseman Tzu-Wei Lin and catcher Sandy Leon, who is getting the start over Christian Vazquez.
Right-hander Rick Porcello will be on the bump for Boston. It's been a dreadful start to the season for Porcello, who in his first three starts is 0-3 with a whopping 11.12 ERA, allowing 14 runs on 22 hits and 12 walks over 11.1 innings.
The Rays will be wearing their throwback Tampa Bay Devil Ray uniforms tonight, and they'll be trotting out a lineup that features right fielder Austin Meadows in the leadoff spot, followed by left fielder Tommy Pham, first baseman Ji-Man Choi and third baseman Yandy Diaz.
Avisail Garcia will be Tampa Bay's designated hitter and bat sixth, while Daniel Robertson will move over to shortstop in place of Willy Adames and bat eighth.
Right-hander Charlie Morton will start for the Rays, and in his first four starts he's 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA, allowing five runs with 25 strikeouts over 20.2 innings.
