Stephen Drew In Tonight's Line-Up; Bats Eighth

Well, that didn't take long! Manager John Farrell's "fascination" with Stephen Drew (apologies to the great Bob Ryan) immediately took hold as the newly promoted shortstop will play tonight and bat eighth in the Red Sox lineup. Xander Bogaerts will play third base and hit second, while the incendiary Brock Holt will lead-off and again play first base. Here's the full Boston lineup: 1. Brock Holt 1B; 2. Xander Bogaerts 3B; 3. Dustin Pedroia 2B; 4. David Ortiz DH; 5. A.J. Pierzynski C; 6. Jonny Gomes LF; 7. Grady Sizemore RF; 8. Stephen Drew SS and 9. Jackie Bradley Jr. CF. John Lackey takes the hill for Boston—opposed by old friend Justin Masterson.
