Jacoby Ellsbury will miss his second straight game Saturday night as the Red Sox attempt to rebound from a bad loss in their series opener against the New York Yankees.

Boston Red Sox (33-23)

  1. Daniel Nava, LF
  2. Mike Carp, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Stephen Drew, SS
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, 3B
  9. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
Starting Pitcher -- Felix Doubront

New York Yankees (31-23)

  1. Brett Gardner, CF
  2. Kevin Youkilis, DH
  3. Robinson Cano, 2B
  4. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  5. Vernon Wells, LF
  6. Jayson Nix, SS
  7. David Adams, 3B
  8. Ichiro Suzuki, RF
  9. Chris Stewart, C

Starting Pitcher -- Phil Hughes

Neither team's starter has done terribly well this season, but both Hughes and Doubront seem to be moving in the right direction of late. Since imploding dramatically against the Royals and Mariners, Hughes has held opponents to three runs in thirteen innings. Foe Doubront, it's been three starts with just two earned runs a piece. He even put together some decent peripherals in his last outing, which had escaped him before.

Add to that the fact that the Red Sox are banged up and the Yankees just getting healthy, and it wouldn't be surprising to see what looks like a mediocre pitching matchup result in precious few runs. Then again, with this being Red Sox - Yankees, anything can happen.
