Here are the lineups:
RED SOX (5-2)
Bradley Jr LF,
Pitching: Ryan Dempster (0-1, 5.40 ERA).
Pitching: Jake Arrieta (0-0, 9.00).
Game time: 7:10 p.m.
TV/Radio: NESN / WEEI-FM.
Red Sox vs. Arrieta: Pedroia 4-11, Ellsbury 2-5, Nava 3-5, Napoli 2-5, Middlebrooks 2-3, Victorino, 3-3, Ciriaco 0-1, Ross 2-2, Saltalamacchia 1-2, Gomes 0-1.

Stat of the Day: Along with his struggles against Dempster, JJ Hardy is 4 for 25 in his last six games against the Sox with just two extra base hits and one RBI.
Notes: Ryan Dempster (1-0 all-time against the Orioles with a 1.35 ERA) went 13 years between his two starts against the Orioles. The first was in 1999. The most recent was last September … Arrieta is winless in four starts against the Sox (0-4, 6.00 ERA) … Shane Victorino has reached base in every game this season … So has Adam Jones, who’s done it with five multi-hit games. He’s hit seven home runs in 43 career games at Fenway and his 20 RBIs at Fenway are the most he’s driven in at any visiting ballpark.
