Brewers at Red Sox: The Lineup Shuffle Continues

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

No getting swept, m'kay, Sox?

So with the series already down in the books as a loss, it would be nice to avoid getting swept. Luckily, the Sox have Jon Lester on the mound today, so there's an excellent chance of little run action on the part of the Milwaukee Brewers. We now just need to hope that the Sox bats can put something together.

Unfortunately, it's another day, another not-exactly-optimal Sox lineup, as Will Middlebrooks is once again unavailable, and Grady Sizemore has a scheduled day off with a day game directly after a night game:

  1. Daniel Nava, RF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Mike Napoli, 1B
  5. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  6. Jonny Gomes, LF
  7. Jonathan Herrera, 3B
  8. Jackie Bradley, Jr., CF
  9. David Ross, C

plus the aforementioned Lester on the mound. However, there's no Placeholder sighting, so it's not nearly as suboptimal as it could have been.

Doing battle for the Milwaukee Brewers today:

  1. Carlos Gomez, CF
  2. Rickie Weeks, 2B
  3. Ryan Braun, RF
  4. Aramis Ramirez, DH
  5. Jonathan Lucroy, C
  6. Khris Davis, LF
  7. Mark Reynolds, 3B
  8. Lyle Overbay, 1B
  9. Jeff Bianchi, SS

with Yovani Gallardo lining up against Lester.

So, just as a reminder, there is to be no sweeping during this game. OK, Red Sox? Good? Then:

GO SOX!
