Red Sox lineup: Jarrod Saltalamacchia sits; Jonny Gomes, Xander Bogaerts start

Although CC Sabathia owns a 2-1 record against them, the Red Sox have been able to knock around the Yankees lefty this season. In four starts against the Sox, Sabathia has a 7.15 ERA and 1.81 WHIP. His numbers are even worse in his two starts at Fenway — 11.32 ERA, 2.23 WHIP.

The Sox offense will look to continue that success on Saturday. Dustin Pedroia is in the leadoff spot once again, while Jonny Gomes and Xander Bogaerts get in the lineup against the lefty. Friday night’s hero, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, gets the day off in favor of David Ross. The struggling Jackie Bradley Jr. also gets the day off.

Jon Lester will take the mound for the Red Sox. He’s been hot over the last month, posting a 1.98 ERA over his last seven starts.
