Will Middlebrooks, who originally was in the Red Sox‘ lineup Sunday, was a late scratch due to soreness in his right hand. The third baseman, who was replaced by Jonathan Herrera, was hit by a pitch in the hand Saturday.

With another left-hander on the mound for the Rangers — this time Robbie Ross Jr. getting the start — Jonny Gomes is back in left field for the Red Sox in their series finale in Texas.

In his last eight games when facing a lefty, Gomes is hitting .375 (6-for-16) with a 1.161 OPS.

Here is the Red Sox lineup with John Lackey getting the start for the visitors.
