Red Sox lineup: Pedro Ciriaco gets start at third base
|05.25.13 at 12:10 pm ET|
Getting the day off is Stephen Drew, who is 0-for-17 since returning from a back issue suffered in Minnesota.
“I can’t say it hasn’t,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell when asked if Drew’s back issue was restricting the shortstop at the plate. “Whether it’s the aggressive in which he swung the bat or just in talking with Stephen I can’t say that it’s restricted his swing or the extension to it. It might just be the overall aggressiveness. All things considered that’s why today was a natural down day for him.”
Here is the lineup for the Red Sox, who will be sending Jon Lester to the mound:
Jonny Gomes LF
David Ortiz DH
Mike Napoli 1B
Daniel Nava RF
Jose Iglesias SS
Pedro Ciriaco 3B
