Red Sox Vs. Rangers Lineup: Doug Fister Gets Ball For Boston In Series Finale

1,551

The Boston Red Sox’s offense has been putting up huge numbers of late, and the Texas Rangers will be happy to see them leave town.

The Red Sox pounded out 19 hits in Tuesday’s 11-4 win over Texas, their sixth victory in a row, and have scored 53 runs on 85 hits in their last five games.

Manager John Farrell has elected to use the same lineup for Wednesday’s series finale at Globe Life Park.

The red-hot Andrew Benintendi, fresh off a six-RBI performance Tuesday, will bat sixth again and play left field behind Doug Fister.

The right-hander has allowed three runs in each of his first two starts for the Red Sox, but Fister has not had success in Texas during his career. He is 1-4 with an 8.59 ERA in 29 1/3 career innings at Globe Life Park.
