The Red Sox will send Clay Buchholz to the mound against Jered Weaver as they look to even up their series against the Los Angeles Angels. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
It's another strange looking lineup for the Red Sox on Wednesday, and while Tuesday's was plenty bizarre as well, there were at least explanations that could be made for the specific changes.
The changes for today, however, with both catchers in the lineup, Scott Podsednik leading off instead of Pedro Ciriaco, and Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia swapping the second and third spots? They seem almost random.
All the Sox can hope for at this point, though, is that Clay Buchholz doesn't end p forced to take any hacks with the bat to blow his back out.
Boston Red Sox (59-64)
Los Angeles Angels (63-60)
