Sox lineup

Things shouldn’t look all that different on this front, as Terry Francona is going with the same lineup he’s used in Games 1 and 2. It’s been successful thus far…

Dustin Pedroia is still doing fine after injuring his shoulder, jamming it a bit, on a dive in Game 2 on Friday. He took batting practice yesterday, and he’s not as sore as Francona thought he might be. So things are looking good on that front.
