Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineups: Cody Ross In Left For Series Opener

The Red Sox will open their three-game set against the New York Yankees Tuesday night as they send Jon Lester to the mound to take on Hiroki Kuroda. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts by NESN, the MLB Network, and WEEI.

Cody Ross will make a rare start in left field, moving over from right in lieu of Ryan Kalish, who will slot into the seventh spot of the Boston lineup. Ross will bat fifth, giving up his cleanup spot to James Loney against with the right-handed Kuroda on the mound.

With both Ross and Kalish in the outfield, Scott Podsednik will have the DH role for the night. Ryan Lavarnway will get the nod behind the plate for the second straight start since Jarrod Saltalamacchia left a game against the Blue Jays with back spasms.
