Red Sox at Braves Lineups: Playing by the NL Rules

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox are coming off a really awful game in Chicago and are looking to turn it around on Labor Day. They have a little day baseball action as they try to do it, and they will be sending a struggling Nathan Eovaldi to the mound. They could really use a strong start from him, not only for the obvious reasons but also because they need his momentum to change for the month of September. On the other side, the Red Sox are facing a very talented but very young pitcher in Touki Toussaint. With outings like this the first couple innings always seem key as you don’t want him to gain confidence and settle into a groove. Here are the full lineups.
