11:58 a.m.: Mike Carp once again stepped up when given an opportunity Saturday, so, as a result, he’ll also be in Sunday’s starting lineup. Carp will bat sixth and play left field — which is the same scenario as Saturday’s. In fact, John Farrell might as well have recycled Saturday’s lineup card, as he’s going with the exact same starting nine. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, I guess. Sunday’s lineups are below. Red Sox (62-43) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Mike Carp, LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Stephen Drew, SS Jose Iglesias, 3B Jon Lester, LHP (9-6, 4.50 ERA) Orioles (58-47) Nick Markakis, RF Manny Machado, 3B Chris Davis, 1B Adam Jones, CF Matt Wieters, DH J.J. Hardy, SS Brian Roberts, 2B L.J. Hoes, LF Taylor Teagarden, C Jason Hammel, RHP (7-7, 5.20 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox sure needed Saturday’s win. The Sox entered Saturday’s contest on the heels of another shutout after Chris Tillman dominated in the series opener Friday, and it was the first game that Boston played while not in first place since May 27. Toss in Baltimore’s dominance over Boston this season, and it was hardly an ideal situation for the Red Sox. Stephen Drew and the offense came alive Saturday, though. Drew smacked two home runs, Mike Carp added three hits and the Red Sox rolled to a 7-3 victory in what was a rather strange game. David Ortiz even got ejected and completely annihilated a dugout telephone (video here). Sunday’s game may or may not end up being as weird, but it’s still a big one for the Sox. Chris Archer pitched a two-hit shutout against the Yankees on Saturday, so Boston trails Tampa Bay by one full game in the AL East. The Red Sox can only control what they can control, but reclaiming the division’s top spot starts with taking down the Orioles at Camden Yards. Sunday’s first pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m, and Jon Lester is set to face Jason Hammel. Toss the TV on NESN, and keep it right here with NESN.com’s live blog.
