Yamaico Navarro went 0-for-3 in his first ever major league start. Bill Hall made a throwing error at second base and lowered his average to .238. Jed Lowrie hit a walk-off in extras. The result — Lowrie gets the start on Sunday.
While it's impossible to call anything the Sox' "normal lineup" these days, Sunday's may be as close as it gets to that.
The first six in the order will be a repeat of Saturday's lineup, with the changes made being at the bottom of the order. Darnell McDonald will get the day off — being replaced by Hall in left field, while Ryan Kalish will get the start in center and hit ninth. Lowrie, on a hot streak since returning from injury, will hit ahead of Hall in the order in the seventh spot as Hall moves down to eighth.
Lowrie is now batting .317 for the season, while Hall went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts on Saturday.
The complete Sox lineup is below.
