Also of note, Dustin Pedroia — who is hitting .429 lifetime against Kuroda — is in the lineup despite seemingly injuring his hand during a head-first slide Monday.
The following is the Red Sox’ lineup with Clay Buchholz on the mound for the visitors:
Daniel Nava DH
Mike Napoli 1B
Will Middlebrooks 3B
Shane Victorino RF
Jackie Bradley LF
