Benintendi On DL, Papi And Leon Sit Out Today's Matinée

With word that rookie phenom Andrew Benintendi was placed on the DL (with his knee injury a possible season-ender), two other Red Sox mainstays will sit out today's matinée finale of the 11-game road trip: David Ortiz and Sandy 'Babe' Leon. Here is today's lineup: Dustin Pedroia, 2B; Xander Bogaerts, SS; Mookie Betts, RF; Hanley Ramirez, DH; Jackie Bradley Jr., CF; Chris Young, LF; Aaron Hill, 3B; Travis Shaw, 1B; Bryan Holaday, C. On the hill for Boston is lefty Drew Pomeranz.
