David Ortiz Is Out Tonight With A 'Calf' Injury

The Red Sox will go for the multi-city four game sweep of the Braves tonight without the services of DH David Ortiz. Ortiz is out with a "calf" injury—hopefully not a euphemism for the dreaded Achilles issue. Many of us in attendance last night noticed that Ortiz walked gingerly off the field at least a couple of times. The Sox line-up is: Brock Holt, 3B; Xander Bogaerts, SS; Dustin Pedroia, 2B; A.J. Pierzynski, DH; Jonny Gomes, LF; Grady Sizemore, RF; Ryan Lavarnway, 1B; David Ross, C; and Jackie Bradley Jr., CF. Jake Peavy starts for The Carmine Hose.
