Red Sox Vs. Marlins Lineups: Dustin Pedroia, Will Middlebrooks Out Against Ricky Nolasco

The Red Sox will look to make it three straight series wins Wednesday night as they send Felix Doubront to the mound against Ricky Nolasco and the Florida Marlins. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

Unfortunately, they'll be without Dustin Pedroia after the second baseman aggravated the thumb injury that had earlier threatened to keep him out for a month in the first game of the series. While currently the injury doesn't seem too serious, the Sox aren't going to be putting him back in the field the day after.

Will Middlebrooks will also sit, as Kevin Youkilis and Adrian Gonzalez get the starts at the corner infield positions. Daniel Nava is back in the starting lineup for the first time since his hand injury, manning left field with Ryan Kalish and Cody Ross in center and right.

Boston Red Sox (34-33)

  1. Daniel Nava, LF
  2. Ryan Kalish, CF
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Cody Ross, RF
