5:12 p.m.: Jarrod Saltalamacchia is earning his paycheck. Salty caught both games of the doubleheader on Tuesday, and he’ll once again be in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Will Middlebrooks will be out of the lineup, as the left side of Boston’s infield will consist of Stephen Drew and Jose Iglesias at shortstop and third base, respectively. The complete lineups for Wednesday are below. Red Sox (44-29) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Daniel Nava, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Jonny Gomes, LF Stephen Drew, SS Jose Iglesias, 3B Ryan Dempster, RHP (4-7, 4.21 ERA) Rays (36-35) Matt Joyce, LF Desmond Jennings, CF Ben Zobrist, 2B Evan Longoria, 3B James Loney, 1B Wil Myers, RF Kelly Johnson, DH Jose Molina, C Yunel Escobar, SS Jeremy Hellickson, RHP (4-3, 5.67 ERA) 4:35 p.m.: The Red Sox announced that they have signed first-round pick Trey Ball. Ball, an 18-year-old left-hander from New Castle, Indiana, was the seventh overall pick in this year’s draft. He is with the Red Sox at Fenway Park now, and he’ll report to the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in Fort Myers next week. 8 a.m. ET: Tuesday marked a long day at the office for the Red Sox. It was also a very productive day, as the Sox swept their doubleheader with the Rays. Game 1 took an eternity because of a three-hour rain delay, but Boston eventually emerged victorious, 5-1. Game 2, on the other hand, moved at a brisk pace, mainly because Felix Doubront pounded the strike zone en route to eight shutout innings. In the end, after Andrew Bailey blew a save in the ninth inning, Jonny Gomes capped off Game 2 and the eventful twin bill with a walk-off home run over the Green Monster. With Tuesday’s two victories, the Red Sox are now a season high-tying 15 games over .500 with a 44-29 record. Ryan Dempster will try to keep moving Boston in the right direction on Wednesday. Wednesday’s contest, which is the Red Sox’ last before going back out on the road, is scheduled to start up at 7:10 p.m. Be sure to tune in on NESN, and keep it right here.
