Red Sox at Phillies lineup: Hanley’s at 1B and the Panda is back

The four-game series moves to Philadelphia after two extra-inning Boston wins at home.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Give us something to smile about!

The Red Sox (36-28) look to beat the Phillies (21-42) for a third straight time, maybe even in nine innings, when they square off tonight in Philadelphia (7:05 p.m., NESN) in the third game of a four-game split-city series. The surprising Brian Johnson (3.44 ERA) will face off for Boston against perpetual trade target Jeremy Hellickson (4.50 ERA); consider it a good chance to see him up close. Hanley Ramirez starts in the field for what I believe is only the second time this year. The first time, he was pulled with an injury. Pablo Sandoval is back at third, which makes sense in Philly’s park as he's basically the platonic ideal of NL baseball. He’ll probably hit two homers and get double switched out or something. That's a thing, right? Weirdos. Here are the full lineups:
