Two of the hottest hitters on the Red Sox weren’t regulars days ago, but injuries that forced Will Middlebrooks and Shane Victorino to the 15-day disabled list have thrust Jose Iglesias and Mike Carp into starting roles. Iglesias is making his second career start at third base and batting in the No. 9 hole, while Carp is starting in left field and batting seventh. Iglesias is 4-for-7 since being recalled from Pawtucket. He went 3-for-4 with two runs in Saturday’s win over Cleveland. The stellar fielder is batting .481 on the season with a 1.093 OPS. Carp has delivered key hits in consecutive games. On Friday, he hit a three-run home run that got the scoring started for Boston. His RBI double on Sunday tied the game before Dustin Pedroia knocked him in for the go-ahead run. See the full lineups for both teams below. Boston Red Sox (30-20) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Daniel Nava, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Mike Carp, LF Stephen Drew, SS Jose Iglesias, 3B Felix Doubront, LHP Cleveland Indians (27-21) Michael Bourn, CF Jason Kipnis, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, SS Nick Swisher, 1B Mark Reynolds, 3B Carlos Santana, C Michael Brantley, LF Mike Aviles, SS Drew Stubbs, RF Corey Kluber, RHP
