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 Doubront, P

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
