Red Sox Vs. Rays Lineups: Daniel Nava Starts In Left

The Red Sox will look to make it a series win against the Rays as they send Daisuke Matsuzaka to the mound against Chris Archer Wednesday night. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

The Sox seem to have learned not to mess with success--at least not too much--as they keep their lineup largely similar for yet another game. The only difference tonight will be the presence of Daniel Nava in left field. Scott Podsednik has been getting the starts there of late, but with just one hit in his last 19 at bats, his contributions to the cause will hardly be missed.
