Game 83: Aiming For 5-4

New, comments

As I mentioned yesterday, a sweep here would actually make this a winning road trip. Go figure!

There's still one win to go, though, and the Sox are gonna need some help from their young folks to make that happen.

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  5. J.D. Drew, RF
  6. Josh Reddick, LF
  7. Yamaico Navarro, SS
  8. Jason Varitek, C
  9. Josh Beckett, P

The last time we saw Josh Beckett things weren't going so well. Now he's got to prove that that was just a bump in the road, the result of rust from a 12-day layoff.
