Ryan Sweeney Bats Second As Red Sox Look to End Slide Against Yankees

Felix Doubront will look to stop the bleeding.

The Red Sox enter Saturday's game against the Yankees having lost four in a row, including the series opener on Friday, which was an otherwise joyous occasion at Fenway.

Mike Aviles will lead off as the Sox look to get the bats going against Freddy Garcia, who is 9-4 with a 4.45 ERA 21 career games against Boston. Garcia is 3-1 with a 4.32 ERA in career games at Fenway Park.

Ryan Sweeney, meanwhile, will bat second, which will slide Dustin Pedroia down to third, Adrian Gonzalez to cleanup and David Ortiz to fifth.
