Jarrod Saltalamacchia Making First Appearance for Red Sox Since Aug. 15

Six Red Sox players who started the first half of Saturday's day-night doubleheader with the Chicago White Sox will be in the lineup again to begin the nightcap.

Marco Scutaro, who had the lone RBI in Boston's 3-1 loss in the opener, will lead things off once again. He is 6-for-9 (.667) with two doubles against White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd.

David Ortiz was batting fifth for just the second time in nearly three months in the afternoon affair. He is back in the cleanup role. Adrian Beltre, who is 5-for-15 (.333) against Floyd, drops down to fifth.

Daniel Nava, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Kalish are the three new starters. For Saltalamacchia it will be his first action since Aug. 15 before he went on the disabled list with an infection in his lower right leg.

Former Boston left fielder Manny Ramirez is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter again. He is 3-for-7 since joining the White Sox.
