Red Sox Vs. Royals Lineups: Red Sox Look For Two Straight Against Danny Duffy

The Red Sox are after a second straight win Tuesday as they send Daniel Bard to the mound against Danny Duffy and the Kansas City Royals. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

After scoring 11 runs on Monday against Jonathan Sanchez and the Royals bullpen, Bobby Valentine will stick with the same lineup against lefty Danny Duffy. Duffy is off to a great start in his first full year in the majors. Through four games he holds a 3.57 ERA, striking out more than a batter per inning. While he's also had some difficulty keeping the ball in the zone, his swing-and-miss stuff has been proven more than enough to make up for it.

  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Cody Ross, RF
  5. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
