I fell asleep after work and woke up much later than I expected! I still have to make dinner so we’ll keep this quick. The Red Sox got a huge start from Chris Sale on Thursday and now they are following it up with a start from Brian Johnson and Friends. The “and friends” is because Johnson isn’t fully stretched out, so expect to see a multi-inning reliever or two in this one even if things go well. Offensively, it’s a standard vs. righties lineup for the Red Sox, with Mitch Moreland and Brock Holt both playing. The full lineups are below, in tweet form.
