Red Sox Vs. Orioles Lineups: Will Middlebrooks Returns Against Tommy Hunter

The Red Sox will hope to avoid being swept in Fenway Park by the Baltimore Orioles Sunday as they send Clay Buchholz to the mound in search of his first quality start.

The day off seems to have cured Will Middlebrooks of his tight hamstring, as the young third baseman returns to the lineup Sunday. The lineup will return to a more standard formation, with Mike Aviles leading off and Ryan Sweeney batting second.
