6:08 p.m.: Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off his shin Saturday, and he was removed from the game before the bottom of the ninth inning. He’s ready to go Sunday, though. Mike Napoli, meanwhile, be out of the Red Sox’ lineup again. He’s been dealing with a foot ailment, and his status remains day-to-day. Daniel Nava will play first base and bat seventh in Napoli’s absence. Check out the complete lineups below. Red Sox (73-52) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Jonny Gomes, LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Daniel Nava, 1B Stephen Drew, SS Will Middlebrooks, 3B Ryan Dempster, RHP (6-8, 4.50 ERA) Yankees (63-59) Brett Gardner, CF Ichiro Suzuki, RF Robinson Cano, 2B Alfonso Soriano, LF Alex Rodriguez, 3B Curtis Granderson, DH Eduardo Nunez, SS Lyle Overbay, 1B Chris Stewart, C CC Sabathia, LHP (10-10, 4.66 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox are still the only team in Major League Baseball without a losing streak of at least four games. The Red Sox bounced back from three straight losses to take down the Yankees 6-1 on Saturday. John Lackey pitched into the seventh inning to earn his first victory since July 12, and Boston’s offense finally came up with some timely hits. The Red Sox’ ability to avoid extended losing streaks speaks to both the depth and resiliency of the club. Even after winning Saturday, both Farrell and Lackey opted to point out that it was just another day at the office rather than overemphasis the victory. It was certainly a big win, though, especially with the Rays nipping at the Red Sox’ heels in the AL East. Saturday’s result means that the Sox and Yanks will now have a rubber match on the national stage. The Red Sox are 9-4 in rubber matches since mid May, and Ryan Dempster and CC Sabathia will be the two hurlers going Sunday night. Boston is 2-1 on Sunday Night Baseball this season, with both victories coming against the Yankees. Sunday’s first pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. That gives you plenty of time to grab some dinner and follow the live blog. See you then.
