Thumb Keeps Victorino Out Of Tonight's Game

Shane Victorino, who jammed his right (top hand) thumb in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles will not be in tonight's lineup for the final game of the series. He was replaced late in yesterday's contest and is considered day-to-day. Jackie Bradley, Jr. will get the start in centerfield tonight, flanked by Daniel Nava in right and Mike Carp in left. Boston—with a win tonight—has the opportunity to clinch a post-season berth. The Magic Number to clinch a division title still remains at three.
