Red Sox Vs. Angels Lineups: Jed Lowrie Sits As Red Sox Go For Sweep In L.A.

Jed Lowrie has been on an absolute tear, batting .431 with three home runs, 12 RBI and 13 runs to start the 2011 campaign. Nevertheless, Lowrie is human and needs rest from time to time, including Sunday afternoon when the Red Sox go for the four-game series sweep against the Los Angeles Angels at 3:30 p.m. EDT (TV/Radio: NESN/WEEI).

Here's a look at the lineup cards, minus Lowrie, as well as a look at the pitching match-ups for today's series finale.

  7. Carl Crawford, LF
  8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  9. Marco Scutaro, SS
Starting Pitcher: John Lackey, RHP (1-2, 9.82) - The former Angels ace returns to Angels Stadium in Anaheim to take on his former club, and is coming off a strong start in which he allowed one earned run on four hits against Oakland.
