Red Sox Call on Conor Jackson to Start in Right Field for Game One of Doubleheader Against Yankees


Sep 25, 2011

In the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Yankees, the Red Sox have Carl Crawford batting second and Conor Jackson starting in right field against A.J. Burnett.

Jackson has struggled since being traded to Boston on Sept. 1. In 14 plate appearences, he is batting .143 with a home run and five RBI.

Tim Wakefield is on the mound for Boston. The ideal situation would be for him to eat up innings and keep the team in the game, as this will most likely be a long day for the bullpen.

With the division all wrapped up, the Yankees have expectedly given a few of their starters the day off, including bench players Brett Gardner, Chris Dickerson, Brandon Laird, and Ramiro Pena in the lineup.
