Red Sox vs. Pirates lineup: Not quite a 1903 World Series redux

The Red Sox are sending a few lesser names to face the Pirates Florida incarnation.

The Red Sox offense has hit mid-season-spring-training, bashing the Rays (19-2) and Braves (9-1) over the last two days. But Super Andrew Benintendi who went 4-4 yesterday isn’t returning for an encore. Which is just fine because Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two home runs when he last took the plate on Thursday.

With a high of 21 today in Boston, it’s a good time to look south and think ahead towards April...

  1. Brock Holt SS
  2. Chris Young LF
  3. Jackie Bradley Jr. CF
  4. Pablo Sandoval 3B
  5. Blake Swihart C
  6. Allen Craig 1B
  7. Brian Bogusevic RF
  8. Junior Lake DH
  9. Mike Miller 2B

SP Hector Velazquez RHP

The Pirates will send Chad Kuhl to the mound and feature their Andrew McCutchen-lead outfield against the visiting Sox. You can catch this one on NESN.

The game starts at 1:05. In the meantime, enjoy BP.
