Boston Red Sox (32-21) at Philadelphia Phillies (25-27) John Lackey (3-4, 2.72) vs. Kyle Kendrick (4-3, 3.29) TIME: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park TV: Comcast Sportsnet Weather: 88, sunny Media: Twitter and Facebook For those wondering why Cesar Hernandez isn’t in the lineup tonight, he won’t be arriving until gametime. Also, the Phillies basically said he wouldn’t have been in the lineup anyway, so there’s that. Tough report on Adam Morgan. He has been shut down with a shoulder ailment, he had tests done last night on it, so we’ll find out more soon. But never good news when it has to do with a top prospect and his shoulder. Also, Carlos Ruiz caught a few bullpen session, is still feeling a little pain in the hammy. He’s still a few days away from testing the leg by running. Lineup: Revere CF, Frandsen 2B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, D. Young RF, Brown LF, Galvis 3B, Kratz C, Kendrick P Your Gameday Beer: Troegs Nugget Nectar Tröegs’ newest single batch brew, Nugget Nectar Ale, will take ho...
