Red Sox lineup: Daniel Nava still in right with Victorino sidelined
|04.30.13 at 3:32 pm ET|
Daniel Nava will continue his work as the Red Sox‘ right fielder and No. 2 hitter with Shane Victorino remaining out of the lineup for a fifth straight game due to his stiff lower back. The Sox will be facing Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow, against whom they’ve enjoyed considerable success, with Jacoby Ellsbury (.444/.474/1.111 with three homers in 20 plate appearances), Dustin Pedroia (.500/.542/1.000 with two homers in 24 plate appearances) and David Ortiz (.429/.556/.929 with two homers in 18 plate appearances) all owning huge numbers against the hard-throwing right-hander.
