It had been raining all morning, but the tarp is now off the field, and players are warming up in the outfield, and the team expects Game One of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader between the Mariners and Red Sox to start on time (1:35 P.M. EDT).

Here's Boston's lineup for the afternoon session:

1. Marco Scutaro, SS
2. J.D. Drew, RF
3. Victor Martinez, C
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Adrian Beltre, 3B
6. Mike Lowell, 1B
7. Daniel Nava, LF
8. Bill Hall, 2B
9. Ryan Kalish, CF

RHP -- Josh Beckett

Game Two, assuming the rain holds off -- there's a 100 percent chance of rain until 11 P.M. tonight -- features a great pitching matchup: Felix Hernandez (9-10, 2.51) facing off against Jon Lester (13-8, 3.26).
