Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineups: Dustin Pedroia plays, broken finger and all

The Red Sox will try and even up their series against the Yankees Tuesday night as they send Jon Lester to the mound for his final start of what has been a terribly disappointing season. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

The spotlight, however, will fall not on Lester, but on Dustin Pedroia, who will suit up and bat second despite the news that he fractured his finger diving into second against the Orioles. He's not had the best of seasons, though he did pull it back some from the brink, but there's nobody out there who can question his drive to compete.
