Pablo Sandoval Back In Red Sox’s Lineup In Series Finale Vs. Blue Jays

Pablo Sandoval is back in the Boston Red Sox’s lineup in Sunday’s matinee series finale at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. He’ll man his usual third base against the Blue Jays and bat sixth after sitting out the previous two games.

He rejoins a Boston offense that saw every starter record a hit Saturday night in a 7-6, come-from-behind win.

Catcher Sandy Leon also joins the lineup, taking over for rookie Blake Swihart and batting eighth. Leon was behind the dish for left-handed pitcher Rich Hill’s first start with the Red Sox — and first in six years — on Sept. 13, a record-setting performance by Hill.

Here’s are today’s starting lineups for Boston and Toronto. First pitch is set for 1:07 p.m. ET.
