Another strong performance from Scott Podsednik has him back in the leadoff spot tonight, as the Red Sox are out to start off June on the right foot with a win over the Blue Jays.

It's been a very strong start for Scott Podsednik in his short time with the Red Sox. 8-for-18 with a home run, Podsednik's RBI double in last night's game was just the latest in a string of hits from a player who, like so many others who have contributed to the Red Sox, were not so much as expected to take the field for the team this season.

Also on a hot streak is Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who will move up to bat fifth in the order after hitting his third homer in five games yesterday. Missing out will be Kevin Youkilis, as Adrian Gonzalez stays at first and Will Middlebrooks takes over at third against right-handed Henderson Alvarez.
