The Battle for Fort Myers rages into its second week.

MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates

Some of the Red Sox lost to the St. Louis Cardinals this afternoon at JetBlue Park, giving Boston its first loss of February, but fear not: There is baseball yet to be played today. If you can’t go undefeated, you can at least win every day you play, which would be pretty good.

Currently the Red Sox have a 1-0 lead against the Twins in the battle for the Mayor’s Cup for Fort Myers supremacy, and they look to make it 2-0 tonight at 6:05 with the B team. This is the gamethread. Here is the lineup, which merely contains two people of whom I’d never heard until I typed them:

  1. Rusney Castillo, RF
  2. Rafael Devers, 3B
  3. Hanley Ramirez, 1B
  4. Steve Selsky, LF
  5. Sam Travis, DH
  6. Deven Marrero, SS
  7. Ivan De Jesus, 2B
  8. Dan Butler, C
  9. Aneury Tavarez, CF

SP: Chandler Shepherd, RF
