6:02 p.m.: There was some news to come out of Sunday’s pregame media availability. First, Andrew Bailey will indeed have shoulder surgery, meaning his season is over. Bailey, who was placed on the disabled list Friday, previously stated that surgery was an option, and he has now officially decided to go down that route. Bailey will likely be out until the second half of the 2014 season, as the surgery will require a 12-month recovery period. Clay Buchholz, meanwhile, will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday. That’s a scary thought, as visits to Andrews often end with bad news. Manager John Farrell said that Buchholz’s visit is mostly about “verification and clarification to get some peace of mind,” though. Farrell also announced that Brandon Workman will start Monday’s series opener against the Rays. Jon Lester will take the ball Tuesday. 5:30 p.m.: Take a look at Sunday’s lineups below. Red Sox (59-40) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jonny Gomes, LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Stephen Drew, SS Jose Iglesias, 3B Ryan Dempster, RHP (5-8, 4.24 ERA) Yankees (52-45) Brett Gardner, CF Ichiro Suzuki, RF Robinson Cano, 2B Lyle Overbay, 1B Vernon Wells, LF Travis Hafner, DH Eduardo Nunez, SS Chris Stewart, C Luis Cruz, 3B CC Sabathia, LHP (9-8, 4.07 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: Sometimes, you’re your own worst enemy. The Red Sox found that out the hard way Saturday, as Boston killed itself with some costly baserunning miscues. The Red Sox ran into three outs on the bases, including two at the plate, and the Yankees emerged victorious. New York’s victory set up a rubber match for Sunday. Ryan Dempster will go up against Yankees ace CC Sabathia, who has lost his last two starts. Dempster, meanwhile, hasn’t factored in a decision since June 25. The 36-year-old lasted just 3 1/3 innings his last time out in Seattle while recording his third straight no-decision. A big series against the red-hot Rays is looming for the Red Sox, but Boston can’t afford to look past Sunday’s series finale. Then again, it’s the Yankees in a Sunday night showdown, so it’s pretty much impossible to overlook that. Sunday’s first pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. Be sure to follow the fun with NESN.com’s live blog.
