Red Sox lineup: Shane Victorino sits as Red Sox try to avoid sweep vs. Orioles

Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino, who was replaced in extra innings on Wednesday night by a pinch-hitter due to a jammed thumb, is out of the lineup on Thursday in the finale of a three-game series against the Orioles. In his absence, Jackie Bradley Jr. is in the lineup in center, with Daniel Nava moving to right field and Mike Carp getting the start in left against O’s right-hander Chris Tillman.

Tillman has dominated the Sox this year, going 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA against Boston in three starts. Victorino is one of the only Sox with any success against the towering right-hander, having forged a .364/.417/.636 line against Tillman that includes a homer. No other member of the Sox roster has homered against the 2013 All-Star.
