The Red Sox and Marlins make up last Sunday’s rained out game with a late afternoon tilt at Fenway Park (5:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network) behind the continually surprising Nick Pivetta.

This would have been the final game of the 2020 season, and it’s remarkable how far the Red Sox have come since then. It’s actually more remarkable how bad they were last year, all things considered, but then again karma had as much free time as anyone last year, and decided to flex on the Sox. This year, she’s all flexed out, and the Sox are the mighty ones. Take that, karma! (Except we deserved it.)

The Sox are giving Christian Vázquez what would have normally been a Sunday day off today, with Kevin Plawecki to start behind the plate and bat seventh. Christian Arroyo will lead off with Danny Santana also riding the pine, at least to start. And, most importantly, J.D. Martinez is out for a third straight game, although they do expect him to be back out there tomorrow. Here are the full lineups:
