Red Sox lineup: Yoenis Cespedes returns, Xander Bogaerts sits
|08.14.14 at 3:24 pm ET|
With a trip of two National League parks in three series behind them, the Red Sox lineup will feature the trio of David Ortiz, Yoenis Cespedes and Mike Napoli in the third, fourth and fifth spots. Cespedes’ presence is noteworthy given that he was removed late from Wednesday’s game due to a hand contusion.
Xander Bogaerts will get a day off, with Brock Holt at shortstop. Will Middlebrooks is at third and Jackie Bradley Jr. is in center field.
