Red Sox Vs. Mariners Lineups: Sox Out To Salvage A Tie Against Jason Vargas

The Red Sox can only hope to salvage a tie against the Seattle Mariners as they wrap up their series in Safeco Sunday afternoon. First pitch is at 4:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

The Sox will have a new lineup against the left-handed Vargas, maintaining the same basic structure as their previous lineup against southpaws, but with some necessary modifications now that Darnell McDonald has been designated for assignment. Both Daniel Nava and Brent Lillibridge will now feature in the outfield in addition to the staple of Cody Ross, batting seventh and ninth respectively.

Otherwise, it's the same as before, with Cody Ross shifting up to the cleanup spot and Kelly Shoppach taking over behind the plate and batting eighth.
