12:20 p.m.: Mike Carp has been swinging the bat well, and he has a good track record against the Indians. That means he’ll be in the starting lineup with right-hander Corey Kluber on the hill. Stephen Drew, who received Saturday off, will return to the lineup and man his usual shortstop position on Sunday. That will shift Jose Iglesias back over to third base. Iglesias played short in Drew’s absence, and he’ll now start his third straight game overall. Sunday’s complete lineups are below. Red Sox (29-21) 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 (3-2, 5.61 ERA) Indians (27-21) Michael Bourn, CF Jason Kipnis, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, DH Nick Swisher, 1B Mark Reynolds, 3B Carlos Santana, C Michael Brantley, LF Mike Aviles, SS Drew Stubbs, RF Corey Kluber, RHP (3-3, 5.19 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: Good teams have players who pick each other up when the circumstances are less than ideal. On Saturday, Jon Lester didn’t have his best stuff, but the Red Sox’ offense came up with a huge four-run rally in the eighth inning to ensure the club still took home a win. The Red Sox have now taken two straight against the Indians after getting blown out on Friday — the night of Terry Francona’s emotional Fenway Park return. They’ll now turn to Felix Doubront as they look to make it three straight against the Tribe. Doubront has had a rollercoaster season, with his struggles due largely to a lack of control. He often finds himself laboring through at-bats and, inherently, innings early on, which causes his pitch count to soar. The left-hander will look to avoid such a tightrope walk on Sunday. Pedro Ciriaco and Jose Iglesias provided a spark in Saturday’s win, while Stephen Drew got the day off, and Mike Carp came up with another big hit. It’ll be interesting to see how manager John Farrell fills out his lineup card on Sunday. The action at Fenway 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’s live blog.
