GAME/OTHER NOTES: Rookie Jed Lowrie will start tonight's game, either at third base or shortstop. Most likely Sean Casey will be given a night off and Kevin Youkilis will slide over to first to make room for Lowrie at third ... Coco Crisp, David Ortiz and DeMarlo Hale will all be wearing No. 42 tonight in honor of Jackie Robinson ... Ortiz requested to be in last night's lineup via text message. At first, Terry Francona thought it was his daughter until a naughty word popped up on his phone ... Kyle Snyder cleared waivers yesterday and accepted his assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket.
