Red Sox vs. Rays: Brandon Workman takes the mound

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Workman is on the mound Sunday afternoon for a team that needs someone to step up.

Brandon Workman will take the mound Sunday afternoon as the Red Sox try to keep this long losing streak from reaching double digits.

Today's Lineups

BOSTON RED SOX TAMPA BAY RAYS
Brock Holt - 3B David DeJesus - LF
Xander Bogaerts - SS Evan Longoria - 3B
Dustin Pedroia - 2B Matt Joyce - DH
David Ortiz - DH Wil Myers - RF
Mike Carp - 1B James Loney - 1B
Daniel Nava - RF Brandon Guyer - CF
A.J. Pierzynski - C Logan Forsythe - 2B
Grady Sizemore - LF Yunel Escobar - SS
Jackie Bradley - CF Jose Molina - C
Brandon Workman - RHP Jake Odorizzi - RHP

So the Brock Holt leadoff experience seems to be a thing now. One that will last, presumably, until Stephen Drew arrives or he gives the team a reason to let it end.

Really, though, what are we looking for today? Obviously a win would be nice--at least I think it would be. It's been so long it's hard to remember exactly how those feel. But more than anything seeing Brandon Workman actually pitch a good game of baseball would be super encouraging, even if all we're looking for is dignity from the rotation in the months to come.

First pitch is at 1:40 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN, WEEI, and the MLB Network.
