Red Sox Vs. Rays Lineup: Adrian Gonzalez Returns Against James Shields

The Red Sox will have Adrian Gonzalez back in the lineup Sunday afternoon as they go for a series win against James Shields and the Rays. First pitch is at 1:40 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

After missing the first two games of the second half with back spasms, and despite originally being doubtful for today's match, Adrian Gonzalez will slot into the cleanup spot and play first base, giving the Red Sox one of the most impressive-looking lineups they've had in recent months.
