Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups: Clay Buchholz returns as Sox go for series win

Jonathan Daniel

Clay Buchholz makes his return Sunday night as the Sox go for a series win over the New York Yankees.

The Red Sox will have Clay Buchholz back on the mound for the first time in ten days as they go for the series win against the New York Yankees.

Boston Red Sox (34-23)

  1. Daniel Nava, LF
  2. Mike Carp, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Stephen Drew, SS
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, 3B
  9. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

Starting Pitcher -- Clay Buchholz

New York Yankess (31-24)

  1. Brett Gardner, CF
  2. Robinson Cano, 2B
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Travis Hafner, DH
  5. Vernon Wells, LF
  6. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  7. Ichiro Suzuki, RF
  8. Jayson Nix, SS
  9. Chris Stewart, C

Starting Pitcher -- Hiroki Kuroda

Buchholz will have the same starting nine behind him that routed the Yanks 11-1 on Saturday. But Hiroki Kuroda isn't exactly Phil Hughes. He's had a couple bad outings, but only if you include that first start against the Sox where a line drive off his finger knocked him out early. Other than that, there's a five-run, two-inning performance against Baltimore on the 22nd, and tons of excellence.

Frankly, though Clay Buchholz has the better numbers on the season, he's the bigger question mark tonight, coming off a 10-day absence. If he's avoided any significant rusting, though, we should be in for quite the duel.
