Lowell in, Youkilis still out

Tonight’s lineups are in, and Mike Lowell is penciled in to the No. 6 spot, his first appearance since Aug. 12, when he suffered an oblique strain. Kevin Youkilis is out for a third straight game, so Mark Kotsay will start at first base and bat in Youkilis’s customary cleanup spot.
