Red Sox Vs. Rays Lineups: Boston Stays The Same Against Jeremy Hellickson

The Red Sox will look to make it two straight against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday night as they send Felix Doubront to the mound against Jeremy Hellickson.

With the righty on the mound, the Sox will once again keep their lineup in order--an all-too-rare occasion so far this year. The odd-man-out for much of this has been Mike Aviles, with this being his third straight game out of the starting lineup. But after his strong start, it's hard to say he's earned any sort of playing time with almost no production coming from him since April.

Pedro Ciriaco hasn't been doing any better of late, but if it's enough to get him intentionally walked by Joe Maddon to set up Jacoby Ellsbury, why not give the Rays the opportunity?
