Red Sox vs. Orioles: The last one

New, comments

It's time to finish the season.

The regular season is coming to an end. All that's left is one meaningless game.

Boston Red Sox (97-64)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Mike Napoli, 1B
  5. Mike Carp, LF
  6. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. John McDonald, 2B
  9. Quintin Berry, RF

Starting Pitcher -- John Lackey Allen Webster

John Lackey a late scratch, likely more due to "why risk it" than anything else.

Baltimore Orioles (84-77)

  1. Brian Roberts, DH
  2. Nick Markakis, RF
  3. J.J. Hardy, SS
  4. Chris Davis, 1B
  5. Steve Pearce, LF
  6. Nate McLouth, CF
  7. Danny Valencia, 3B
  8. Steve Clevenger, C
  9. Jonathan Schoop, 2B

Starting Pitcher -- Chris Tillman

And what a lineup to end the season with. John McDonald eighth, Quintin Berry ninth, and of course, Xander Bogaerts in against the righty instead of the lefty. Who knows?

But who cares. The order of the day is no injuries, and so long as the Red Sox can accomplish that, we'll call this day and an 0-2 finish to the season a perfect success.
