Red Sox Vs. Rays Lineups: Adrian Gonzalez Stays In Right Against Jeremy Hellickson

The Red Sox are out for another series win against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday afternoon. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m. with broadcasts by NESN, TBS, and WEEI.

Adrian Gonzalez will stay in right field with Will Middlebrooks at third and Kevin Youkilis at first as the Sox try to score some runs off of Jeremy Hellickson. That's proved a tall order for teams so far, though the Sox have done it once before, taking five off of him in five innings back in April.

Unless they can replicate that feat, they'll need Clay Buchholz to be the man he was against the Rays last time out--arguably his only decent start of the year--rather than the man he's been in every other game.
