Xander Bogaerts Starting At 3B Tonight For Sox

After sitting out against a left-handed hurler last night, Xander Bogaerts will be in tonight's lineup against right-handerBud "Don't Call me Chuck" Norris. Don't ask us! Oh, and Xander is displacing Will Middlebrooks at third base, while Stephen Drew returns at shortstop. Daniel Nava will get the start tonight in left field. Norris has three wins for the Birds since coming over from the Houston Lastros, but he has posted a 5.53 ERA in five starts for Baltimore. Tonight's Sox starter, John Lackey, has pretty much had the reverse experience of Norris, spinning a 3.17 ERA this year, but enjoying only 8 wins against 11 losses.
