NEW YORK — As the Red Sox prepare for the final installment of their four-game set in the Bronx, they will feature their third leadoff man of the series. Shane Victorino is out of the lineup on Sunday, resulting in Daniel Nava assuming leadoff duties against Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. Mike Napoli, who has blasted six homers in his last 12 games including two on Saturday, is also out of the lineup.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be behind the plate for Jon Lester, with the catcher making his return after sitting for five games while managing lower back discomfort. Stephen Drew, after a day off on Saturday, is back in the lineup, with Xander Bogaerts returning to the bench.
