Red Sox Vs. Tigers Lineups: Dustin Pedroia Out Against Justin Verlander

The Red Sox will have the unenviable task of scoring against Justin Verlander Tuesday night as they take on the Tigers in Detroit. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST, with broadcasts on NESN, ESPN, and WEEI.

One night after being removed in the fifth inning with a jammed thumb, Dustin Pedroia will be absent from the lineup--an inauspicious sign for a Red Sox team already beset by more than its fair share of injuries. Nick Punto will take over at second base, which is an inauspicious sign for a baseball team in general.

Will Middlebrooks will also be absent, the odd-man-out as Adrian Gonzalez returns to first base.
