Red Sox Spring Training 2012: In Final Florida Game, Sox Take On The Nationals

The Red Sox prepare to bid farewell to Ft. Myers and JetBlue Park as they play the Nationals in their final game before heading North. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m. EST, but neither a radio nor television broadcast is being offered by either team.

It's been an up-and-down spring training for the Boston Red Sox, but at the moment it's looking like they'll end the preseason on a good note. A 5-1 win against the Twins on Sunday left them with a 4-1-1 record over their last six games, now they'll look to make it 5-1-1 with Aaron Cook on the mound.

The Sox will be trotting out a reasonably full lineup against Jordan Zimmerman, with the only exceptions being Darnell McDonald in left and Kelly Shoppach behind the plate despite the presence of a righty on the mound:

Boston Red Sox (14-11)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  5. David Ortiz, DH
  6. Darnell McDonald, LF
  7. Ryan Sweeney, RF
  8. Mike Aviles, SS
  9. Kelly Shoppach, C
Washington Nationals (12-15)
  1. Roger Bernadina, CF
  2. Ian Desmond, SS
  3. Danny Espinosa, 2B
  4. Adam LaRoche, 1B
  5. Xavier Nady, RF
  6. Chad Tracy, LF
  7. Wilson Ramos, DH
  8. Jesus Flores, C
  9. Steve Lombardozzi, C
