If you haven't been watching lately, it appears the Boston Red Sox are back to their accustomed winning ways. The Sox now stand at 8-11, where just a week ago they were 2-10.
The team is currently riding high on a three-game winning streak as they look to take game three of a four game series against the Los Angeles Angels.
After Jarrod Saltalamacchia's struggles behind the plate last night, it appears it's another Jason Varitek day, catching Daisuke Matsuzaka. Kevin Youkilis will be returning to the lineup after suffering a bruised shin in Friday night's 4-2 win over the Halos. Meanwhile, Carl Crawford will batting in another slot: batting eighth in the order tonight. Here's the rest of the lineup:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. David Ortiz, DH
6. Jed Lowrie, SS
7. J.D. Drew, RF
8. Carl Crawford, LF
9. Jason Varitek, C
Will Dice-K make it two consecutive solid outings?
