Red Sox Vs. Athletics Lineup: Eduardo Rodriguez Starts For Series Finale

2,391

The Boston Red Sox have a shot at sweeping the Oakland Athletics for the second time this season, and Eduardo Rodriguez will be on the mound looking to get the job done Sunday.

The left-hander struggled in his last outing on Aug. 28 after he missed a start with hamstring tightness, allowing five runs to the Kansas City Royals over 5 1/3 innings. But otherwise, Rodriguez was pretty successful in August, holding opponents to a .188 average to go with a 3.33 ERA.

The rest of Boston’s lineup looks nearly identical to the one that clobbered the A’s 11-2 on Saturday. The only change is that Brock Holt will start in left field and bat seventh.

Here are both teams’ lineups for Sunday’s game.

RED SOX (76-59)
Dustin Pedroia, 2B
Xander Bogaerts, SS
David Ortiz, DH
Mookie Betts, RF
Hanley Ramirez, 1B
Sandy Leon, C

Eduardo Rodriguez, LHP (2-6, 5.35 ERA)

ATHLETICS (57-78)
