Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: Andrew Benintendi Debuts At Fenway Park


BOSTON — Andrew Benintendi is about to debut on one of the biggest possible stages.

The 22-year-old Red Sox outfielder already made his Major League Baseball debut Aug. 2 against the Mariners in Seattle. But Benintendi will make his first start at Fenway Park on Tuesday and get to experience the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, playing in left and batting ninth against New York. Brock Holt will move over to shortstop for Xander Bogaerts, who’s getting a routine day off, and bat eighth.

Rick Porcello is on the mound for the Red Sox, and he’s looking to bounce back from a loss against Seattle and keep his undefeated streak at Fenway alive. The right-hander is 10-0 at Fenway, and six of his last seven outings have been quality ones.

Here are both teams’ lineups for Tuesday.

RED SOX (60-50)
Mookie Betts, RF
Dustin Pedroia, 2B
David Ortiz, DH
Hanley Ramirez, 1B
Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
Travis Shaw, 3B
Brock Holt, SS
Sandy Leon, C
Andrew Benintendi, LF

Rick Porcello, RHP (14-3, 3.46 ERA)

YANKEES (56-55)
Brett Gardner, LF
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Brian McCann, DH
Starlin Castro, 2B
Didi Gregorius, SS
Chase Headley, 3B
Gary Sanchez, C
Aaron Hicks, RF

Luis Severino, RHP (1-6, 6.02 ERA)
