Red Sox: Jacoby Ellsbury CF, Dustin Pedroia 2b, Kevin Youkilis 1B, Lars Anderson DH, Jed Lowrie SS, Angel Chavez 3B, Josh Bard C, Zach Daeges LF and Josh Reddick RF and LHP Kris Johnson on the mound.

Northeastern: Matt Miller RF, David Gustafson CF, Mike Tamsin 3B, Frank Pesanello C, James Donaldson 2B, Jeff Dunlap LF, Brendan Stokes 1B, Devin Barry DH, Sam Berg SS and RHP Russ Lloyd.
