2:15 p.m.: The Red Sox came out with a lineup and then made a change to it soon after it was posted. Shane Victorino was originally going to get the day off, as he continues to play at less than 100 percent. John Farrell said that Mike Napoli is dealing with a bit of a foot ailment, though, and the first baseman is a late scratch because of it. Victorino will thus be inserted into the lineup and man right field. Daniel Nava, who was originally set to play right, will scoot over to left field, while Mike Carp heads into the infield to play first base. Saturday’s complete lineups are below. Red Sox (72-52) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Carp, 1B Daniel Nava, LF Stephen Drew, SS Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Will Middlebrooks, 3B John Lackey, RHP (7-10, 3.32 ERA) Yankees (63-58) 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 Hiroki Kuroda, RHP (11-7, 2.33 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox weren’t sharp Friday — to say the least. The Red Sox made three errors, surrendered 15 hits and were dominated by the Yankees 10-3 in the series opener. Alfonso Soriano and Mark Reynolds each went deep in what was a subpar outing for Felix Doubront. All of the Alex Rodriguez hoopla will probably die down a bit Saturday. Then again, he’s the most hated man in baseball, so the Fenway Faithful will probably give the controversial slugger another earful when he comes to the plate for the first time — and then every time after that. Rodriguez will first dig in against John Lackey, who was rather outspoken this week about A-Rod’s suspension. Lackey and Jonny Gomes are among those who find it unfair that Rodriguez gets to play — and potentially make an impact in a playoff race — while having a historic 211-game suspension over his head. Lackey will go up against Hiroki Kuroda, who is putting together a very nice season for New York. Kuroda comes in at 11-7 with a 2.33 ERA, and he has lost just one of his last six starts. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 0.94 ERA in that six-start span. Saturday’s first pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. Be sure to drop by. Filed under: Boston Red Sox, Headlines
