11:28 a.m.: Jose Iglesias is already showing off his versatility. Iglesias received the start at third base on Friday, and he’ll now shift over to his natural shortstop position, with Stephen Drew getting a scheduled day off. Iglesias will bat eighth, while Pedro Ciriaco will man the hot corner and bat ninth. David Ross, who was activated off the seven-day concussion list before Friday’s game, will also be in Saturday’s starting lineup. He’ll take his spot behind the dish, and he’ll bat seventh. The rest of Saturday’s lineups are below. Red Sox (29-20) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Jonny Gomes, LF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Daniel Nava, RF David Ross, CF Jose Iglesias, SS Pedro Ciriaco, 3B Jon Lester, LHP (6-1, 3.15 ERA) Indians (27-20) Drew Stubbs, CF Mike Aviles, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, SS Nick Swisher, 1B Mark Reynolds, 3B Carlos Santana, DH Yan Gomes, C Michael Brantley, LF Ryan Raburn, RF Scott Kazmir, LHP (2-2, 6.35 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: John Lackey and the Red Sox were unfazed by Friday’s rain delay. When the action started, they proved that they were up to the challenge of bouncing back from Thursday night’s blowout loss. Lackey tossed seven fantastic innings, and all the Indians’ offense could muster up was one unearned run. That was hardly enough to overcome an eight-run Red Sox attack that was fueled by a three-run homer by Mike Carp. When all was said and done, the Sox emerged victorious on what was a very soggy night at Fenway Park. Saturday figures to be another wet one. There’s rain in the forecast, but hopefully, things will stay dry enough to play some baseball. If and when that’s the case, Jon Lester will go up against Scott Kazmir in a battle of two lefties. Saturday’s action is scheduled to start up at 1:35 p.m. Be sure to tune in on NESN, and keep it right here with NESN.com. Oh yeah, and stay dry.
