BALTIMORE — There’s a verdict in the David Ortiz-Kevin Gregg suspension situation.
Ortiz and Gregg have had their punishments reduced to three games by Major League Baseball and will begin serving their suspensions tonight. Thus, neither will be eligible to play in this series, a factor that figures to diminish the chances of any carryover from the contentious four-game series in Fenway from July 7-10.
Here are the lineups:
RED SOX (57-36)
Pitching: RHP Tim Wakefield (5-3, 4.74)
Pitching: RHP Brad Bergesen (1-6, 5.65)
