8:09 p.m.: The Red Sox have made a flurry of roster moves. The headline grabber is top prospect Xander Bogaerts getting called up to the major league club. To make room for Bogaerts on the active roster, the Red Sox have optioned Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket. To make room for Bogaerts on the 40-man roster, Clay Buchholz, who has been out since June 8, has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list. David Ross, meanwhile, has been activated from the 60-day disabled list. To make room for Ross on the active roster, the Red Sox optioned Ryan Lavarnway back to Pawtucket. To make room for Ross on the 40-man roster, Andrew Miller was transferred to the 60-day DL. The Red Sox also sent Rubby De La Rosa to Triple-A while calling up reliever Brayan Villarreal, who was acquired from the Tigers as part of the Jake Peavy trade. 6:55 p.m.: The Red Sox appear to be making some roster moves before Monday’s game, but their lineup is pretty standard. Monday’s lineups are below. Red Sox (73-53) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, 1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Daniel Nava, LF Stephen Drew, SS Will Middlebrooks, 3B Jon Lester, LHP (10-7, 4.31 ERA) Giants (55-68) Andres Torres, CF Marco Scutaro, 2B Brandon Belt, 1B Buster Posey, C Hunter Pence, RF Pablo Sandoval, 3B Jeff Francoeur, LF Brandon Crawford, SS Tim Lincecum, RHP (6-12, 4.38 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: Things aren’t exactly going swimmingly for the Red Sox, and their schedule is only going to get more difficult. The Red Sox have lost seven of their last 10 games after dropping two of three to the Yankees over the weekend. Now, they must travel out west for a six-game road trip against the Giants and Dodgers. Sunday’s game, which Boston lost 9-6, didn’t end until after midnight, yet the Red Sox are scheduled to board a plane at 10 a.m. ET to head out to San Francisco for a game at 10:15 p.m. ET. It’s a brutal travel schedule, although the Red Sox must overcome the lack of sleep, because they’re in need of a win. Sunday’s game against the Yankees will be remembered for the fireworks between Ryan Dempster and Alex Rodriguez, but the loss is what really stings the Sox. The Rays are hot on their heels in the AL East, and Boston can’t afford to get caught up in any extracurriculars or else its division lead could slip away. Monday’s first pitch is scheduled for 10:15 p.m. ET, and Jon Lester will go up against Tim Lincecum. Be sure to tune in on NESN, and keep it right here with NESN.com’s live blog.
