Red Sox Vs. Orioles Lineups: Daniel Nava Returns To Left Against Brian Matusz

The Red Sox are out to salvage a game from their three-game set against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday night. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN, the MLB Network, and WEEI.

The basic form of Boston's lineup will remain largely the same as they take on another lefty in Brian Matusz, with Adrian Gonzalez still batting sixth behind a core lineup of Kevin Youkilis, David Ortiz, and Will Middlebrooks. Daniel Nava will return to left field after finally receiving the day off Bobby Valentine has been promising for weeks, with Kelly Shoppach taking over behind the plate.
