Tonight Ryan Borucki will make his Fenway Park debut. Facing the Astros, Yankees, Red Sox, and the lefty mashing Tigers has been no short order, but he has been excellent. Let's hope he can get a little more run support this time around.
It sounds like Sam Gaviglio will start against the Red Sox tomorrow. He only threw 48 pitches his last time out.
Here are the lineups for tonight. Marco Estrada has been placed on the DL, and Dwight Smith Jr has been recalled. It only took one Curtis Granderson pinch running experience to finally make the move.
Gurriel gets another start at short and bats 2nd, and Dwight Smith Jr will start in place of Tesocar who has a sore heel. On the Red Sox side, Steve Pearce sits, which means he must be still battling that hit by pitch yesterday.
