The Red Sox have dropped David Ortiz to sixth in the batting order, with J.D. Drew moving up to the struggling Ortiz's familiar third spot.

When asked by my Globe colleague Amalie Benjamin if he was going to talk to the media before the game, Ortiz replied, "After I go deep tonight."

Also, Mike Lowell is out of the lineup tonight, with Kevin Youkilis moving across the diamond to third base.
