Youkilis, Ellsbury out of lineup

The Red Sox will take on Carl Pavano and the Cleveland Indians with something of a makeshift lineup tonight. First baseman Kevin Youkilis (oblique, sore side) and center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (right hamstring) are out of the starting lineup, with Jeff Bailey and Jonathan Van Every taking their respective positions defensively. J.D. Drew will move into Ellsbury’s spot atop the lineup.
