Red Sox Vs. Mariners Lineups: Sox Go For Quick Sweep, Five Straight Against Mariners

The Red Sox are in search of their second sweep of the season and a five-game winning streak as they take on the Mariners in a Tuesday matinee. First pitch is at 4:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts from NESN and WEEI.

The Sox have been on an impressive streak, not simply destroying teams with offense as they did in their first long winning streak, but actually playing solid, all-around baseball in their last three. Jon Lester was the author of the most recent impressive performance, going the whole nine innings Monday, allowing just one run as the Sox put up six behind him.

It's the kind of quiet, they've seen so little of since the end of last August.

Now they'll go for five straight wins and four straight strong games against Blake Beavan and the Seattle Mariners.

  1. Ryan Sweeney, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
