Red Sox at Tigers lineup: Boogie down in Motown

David Price faces one of his old teams tonight in Detroit.

And... we’re back! The Red Sox (68-30) look for their 69th win of the season tonight in Detroit against the flailing Tigers (41-57) behind the mercurial David Price (10-6, 4.42 ERA) at Comerica Park (7:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network).

About tonight’s game: Price will face fellow southpaw Matthew Boyd (4-8, 4.76 ERA), who looks EXTREMELY stoned in his profile picture. Hopefully that means he gets... rocked tonight.

Anyhow, being the first game out of the break, the whole gang is available tonight, but Jackie Bradley Jr. takes a seat against the lefty, with Mookie Betts moving to center field, J.D. Martinez to right and Steve Pearce to DH, batting fourth.

Forecast: Unfortunately, we’ve got a 50 percent change of rain to match the otherwise lovely 76 degree weather.

Today’s reading: Jakey-poo dives into the worst — sorry, “unlikeliest” — All-Stars in Red Sox history. Brock Holt’s only No. 2!

A good tweet heading into tonight:
