5:43 p.m.: Much of the conversation following the Red Sox’ loss Monday understandably centered on Jerry Meals’ missed call. That talk has lingered over into Tuesday, as John Farrell spent much of his time during pregame media availability answering questions about both the situation and the potential for expanded replay in baseball. Farrell said that he appreciates Meals admitting after Monday’s game that he made the wrong call, even though it doesn’t change much. Farrell said that Meals’ missed call, if anything, just furthers the debate about the use of expanded replay, which the Red Sox skipper is in favor of. Farrell said that he understands MLB faces challenges when it comes to implementing expanded replay, but he still thinks that replay could be used to a greater extent given all of the technology that we have nowadays. When asked if he’d support a one-challenge system on safe/out calls, Farrell said, “Yes.” 5:15 p.m.: Tuesday’s lineups are below. Red Sox (63-44) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Jonny Gomes, LF Stephen Drew, SS Jose Iglesias, 3B Brandon Workman, RHP (0-1, 4.40 ERA) Mariners (50-55) Brad Miller, SS Nick Franklin, 2B Kyle Seager, 3B Kendrys Morales, DH Raul Ibanez, LF Mike Morse, RF Justin Smoak, 1B Michael Saunders, CF Henry Blanco, C Joe Saunders, LHP (9-9, 4.48 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox need to turn the page. After taking two straight in Baltimore, the Red Sox dropped a 2-1 decision to the Rays in a makeup game Monday. It wasn’t your typical loss, though, as some poor baserunning by Daniel Nava and a missed call by home plate umpire Jerry Meals helped Tampa Bay secure the victory. Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday’s game that Meals made a “terrible” call on what would have been the tying run for Boston. Nava, who was called out despite sliding under Jose Molina’s tag, chalked it up to the human element of baseball.

With a win Monday, the Red Sox would have extended their lead in the AL East to 1 1/2 games. Instead, they face a half-game deficit. The Red Sox will look to make sure that Monday’s blown call doesn’t linger. Their first opponent will be the Mariners, who arrive in town Tuesday for a three-game set. Brandon Workman will go up against Joe Saunders in the series opener at Fenway Park. Tuesday’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m., so be sure to join the fun on NESN and with NESN.com’s live blog. Filed under: Boston Red Sox, Headlines, Live Blog, Ricky Doyle
