Red Sox Vs. Orioles: Boston Looks To Win Series With John Lackey On Mound

A day after bringing the support early and the heavy artillery late, the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles will get back to business and look to avoid any repercussions following Friday night's near-brawl induced by Kevin Gregg

The Red Sox will return to a very familiar, lefty-heavy lineup against right-hander Alfredo Simon, and will hope to get a strong rebound performance form John Lackey after a game in which he allowed eight runs to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The lineups will look like this:

Boston Red Sox

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B

5. David Ortiz, DH

6. Josh Reddick, LF

7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

8. J.D. Drew, RF

9. Marco Scutaro, SS

 

Baltimore Orioles

1. J.J. Hardy, SS

2. Nick Markakis, RF

3. Adam Jones, CF

4. Vladimir Guerrero, DH

5. Matt Wieters, C

6. Derrek Lee, 1B

7. Mark Reynolds, 2B

8. Nolan Reimold, LF

9. Robert Andino, SS.
