Red Sox lineup: Jonathan Herrera back at third, Jackie Bradley Jr. in center

As the Red Sox look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Brewers, they will feature a lineup with Jonathan Herrera at third base and Jackie Bradley Jr. in center field. Third baseman Will Middlebrooks remains out due to a calf injury that will require an MRI this morning; Bradley gets the start in center with Grady Sizemore sitting out of a day game following a (very late) night game. David Ross will be behind the plate for Jon Lester.

The Red Sox lineup has limited familiarity with Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo, whose only other appearance against Boston came in 2011. The Brewers likewise have seen little of Lester, save for first baseman Lyle Overbay, who owns a career .321/.387/.607 line against the left-hander in 31 plate appearances.
