Jose Iglesias Gets Third Career Start at Third Base in Interleague Matchup Against Phillies

The Red Sox will know the Phillies well after this week.

Boston takes on Philadelphia at Fenway Park for two games before traveling to Philly for two more. There aren’t many changes to the Red Sox’ lineup from Sunday afternoon’s game against the Indians. The biggest difference is seeing Stephen Drew slide up from the No. 8 hole to batting sixth.

Drew went 3-for-4 on Sunday and the Red Sox may be trying to strike when the iron is hot. Jose Iglesias is batting ninth and playing third base. It’s Iglesias’ third career major league start at the hot corner.
