The Red Sox (23-22) are in danger of falling to back to .500 against old friend Wade Miley and the mighty Astros (31-15) this afternoon at 1:05 p.m. at Fenway Park.

The good news? Chris Sale is on the mound. The fun news? Andrew Benintendi gets the day off against the lefty, leaving Michael Chavis in the leadoff spot (!!). Hot-hitting Christian Vázquez moves up to fifth in the order and J.D. Martinez gets the outfield start, leaving Eduardo Núñez in the DH spot and batting eighth.

The bad news? The Astros are still very good and put out their lineup that’s still, oh yeah, missing a former MVP. Happy Sunday!
