The Red Sox go for the series win against the Orioles at Fenway Park on Sunday afternoon after a split of their day/night doubleheader Saturday. Boston won the opener 3-2 on a ninth-inning walk-off single by Jonathan Herrera but dropped the evening game 7-4 despite eleven strike outs by starting pitcher John Lackey.

Jake Peavy (1-7, 4.82) starts for Boston; he'll be opposed by RHP Kevin Gausman (3-2, 3.86). Peavy is winless in his last twelve starts, but has also been victimized by poor offensive support - Boston has scored two runs or less in thirteen of his seventeen starts.

Here is the Red Sox (39-48) lineup for this afternoon's game (first pitch - 1:35 pm ET):

1) Holt RF
2) Nava LF
3) Pedroia 2B
4) Ortiz DH
5) Napoli 1B
6) Drew SS
7) Ross C
8) Bradley Jr. CF
9) Bogaerts SS
