Game 4: Red Sox Seek First Win In Cleveland

New, 524 comments

Did the day off give everyone time to clear their minds and get past the opening sweep? Hopefully, the answer to that is yes, and the Red Sox won't give us anymore reason to doubt them tonight.

A new lineup tonight, featuring Crawford second and Pedroia third. A bit of an odd combination, but we'll see how that works out.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

2. Carl Crawford, LF

3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

5. Kevin Youkilis, 3B

6. David Ortiz, DH

7. J.D. Drew, RF

8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

9. Marco Scutaro, SS

The Indians respond with, well, what they have: Shin-Soo Choo, Carlos Santana, and the artist formerly known as Travis Hafner. If Beckett can't get it done against this bunch, with only Choo hitting him particularly well, then it's bad news.

1. Michael Brantley, CF

2. Asdrubal Cabrera, SS

3. Shin-Soo Choo, RF

4. Carlos Santana, C

5. Travis Hafner, DH

6. Orlando Cabrera, 2B

7. Austin Kearns, LF

8. Matt LaPorta, 1B

9. Jack Hannahan, 3B

Josh Tomlin opposes the Red Sox. Hopefully the Sox finally show what they can really do to an average righty.

Go Sox!
