Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: Regulars Return For Second Game Of Doubleheader

The Red Sox will have a slightly more impressive lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees. First pitch is at 7:15 p.m. EST with broadcasts by FOX and WEEI.

After a distinctly minor league lineup was held to just one run in the first game of the day, the Sox will have a few more regulars worked into the order as they try to snap their five-game losing streak in the nightcap.

One of those regulars will be Ryan Sweeney, making his return from the disabled list after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in the middle of June. Ryan Kalish was optioned to make room for the outfielder, who will bat seventh and play center field.

Boston Red Sox (42-42)

  1. Daniel Nava, LF
  2. Nick Punto, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  5. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
