Red Sox vs. Orioles lineups: Daniel Nava returns

Jim Rogash

Daniel Nava is back in the order as the Sox head back out on the road.

Daniel Nava is back in the lineup one day after being curiously excluded from John Farrell's order for a game that was never played.

Boston Red Sox (61-42)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Daniel Nava, LF
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Stephen Drew, SS
  9. Jose Iglesias, 3B
Starting Pitcher -- John Lackey

Baltimore Orioles (57-46)

  1. Nate McLouth, LF
  2. Manny Machado, 3B
  3. Nick Markakis, RF
  4. Adam Jones, CF
  5. Chris Davis, 1B
  6. Matt Wieters, C
  7. J.J. Hardy, SS
  8. Henry Urrutia, DH
  9. Brian Roberts, 2B

Starting Pitcher -- Chris Tillman

With the Rays gone the AL East lead no longer hangs completely in the balance of the game they play tonight, but frankly that doesn't turn down the pressure all that much. Hopefully the Yankees can give us a little breathing room (dirty though it may make us feel to hope for a New York win), but if the Red Sox don't win these games there's every likelihood they'll be looking up at the Rays when the night is over.

The good news is that it's still John Lackey's turn to get the job done and hold that lead. The bad news is that the Orioles have had Boston's number for quite a while now, and Chris Tillman has contributed to that this year. Tonight will hopefully be different, but if not, Lackey is going to need to come up big.
