Red Sox Vs. Marlins Lineups: Will Middlebrooks Bats Cleanup Against Mark Buehrle

The Red Sox will try to snap their four-game losing streak Tuesday night as they take on Mark Buehrle and the Miami Marlins. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN, the MLB Network, and WEEI.

Coming up against Mark Buehrle and his big splits, the Red Sox have stacked their lineup with as many right-handed hitters as possible. When on the road against National League teams, that means no David Ortiz, as first and third base are committed to Kevin Youkilis and Will Middlebrooks respectively.

Middlebrooks, for his part, will get the nod at the cleanup spot--the first time he's done so in the majors. Kelly Shoppach will also get a big bump up, hitting sixth behind Adrian Gonzalez.

Boston Red Sox (29-32)

  1. Scott Podsednik, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
  4. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  5. Adrian Gonzalez, RF
  6. Kelly Shoppach, C
  7. Mike Aviles, SS
  8. Darnell McDonald, LF
  9. Clay Buchholz, P
