The Boston Red Sox will continue riding their new-look lineup Tuesday night when they take on the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.
Jackie Bradley Jr. remains out of the starting lineup for the third straight game. Andrew Benintendi will play center field while Chris Young will bat sixth and play left field.
Without a designated hitter, Hanley Ramirez will begin the series opener on the bench as Mitch Moreland starts at first base.
The red-hot Sandy Leon will do the catching for left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who is coming off a win against the Baltimore Orioles in which he gave up two earned runs and struck out seven over 5 1/3 innings.
Milwaukee will counter with right-hander Wily Peralta, who hasn’t pitched into the seventh inning yet this season.
