With Felix Hernandez pitching for the Mariners in their series finale against the Red Sox, Ryan Lavarnway gets the start at catcher. Also in the Red Sox’ starting lineup is Brock Holt, who mans third, having gone 1-for-2 against the Seattle ace.

A collection of Red Sox have fared fairly well against Hernandez, with Jacoby Ellsbury hitting .286 (6-for-21), David Ortiz going 9-for-29 (.310) and Dustin Pedroia hitting .286 (10-for-35). Struggling vs. the righty have been Mike Napoli (6-for-36, .167), Daniel Nava (2-for-11, .182) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has gone 5-for-25 (.200).
