Against Yankees’ right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, switch-hitting Daniel Nava will get the start at designated hitter and hit second.
Monday’s No. 2 hitter for the Red Sox, Shane Victorino has been moved to the seventh spot, in front of Jackie Bradley and Jose Iglesias. 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
Jose Iglesias SS
The following is the Yankees‘ lineup:
