Francona: We might adjust our batting order
|10.10.09 at 5:17 pm ET|
Red Sox manager Terry Francona said on Saturday that he might change the batting order for his team entering a do-or-die Game 3 against the Angels on Sunday afternoon against lefty Scott Kazmir.
“We might adjust our batting order a little bit, but the same guys will play,” Francona said.
Kazmir is 8-7 in 23 lifetime games against the Red Sox, including 2-0 this season while he was with Tampa Bay. The Sox are batting just .131 (8-for-61) in the two games against Los Angeles, with just two extra-base hits.
