Series Preview

Today's Lineups

Brock Holt - 1B Michael Bourn - CF
Xander Bogaerts - 3B A. Cabrera - SS
Dustin Pedroia - 2B M. Brantley - LF
David Ortiz - DH Jason Kipnis - 2B
Jonny Gomes - LF L. Chisenhall - 1B
A.J. Pierzynski - C Ryan Raburn - DH
Alex Hassan - RF David Murphy - RF
Jackie Bradley - CF Yan Gomes - C
J. Herrera - SS Mike Aviles - 3B
Jake Peavy - RHP T.J. House - LHP

Because the Indians are sending a left-hander to the mound, LGFT Grady Sizemore is out of the lineup, as is Stephen Drew. Sill, the Sawx have four left-handed hitters in their lineup, and with three southpaws in the bullpen, Terry Francona should be able to do a lot of mixing and matching if Boston starts pinch-hitting left-handers after House leaves the game.

The Indians will be facing Jake Peavy, who they've had plenty of experience against in recent years. Peavy's given up a ton of hits in recent starts, and has already given up 10 home runs. Still, he's been a good innings eater for Boston, only going fewer than six innings twice in 2014.
