Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: David Price Starting Crucial Series Finale


David Price has the chance to leave quite the impression in the Bronx on Thursday night.

The Red Sox left-hander is set to start the club’s three-game series finale against the New York Yankees, and he’ll look to deliver Boston the series win after the teams split the first two contests.

Price is coming off a strong start against the Baltimore Orioles in which he allowed just one run over seven innings in his second outing since coming off the disabled list.

Boston’s lineup will look a bit different from the unit that New York left-hander CC Sabathia shut down Wednesday night. Left fielder Andrew Benintendi and first baseman Mitch Moreland are back in the lineup — batting second and fourth, respectively — against Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda, while Pablo Sandoval gets the start at third base, batting eighth.

Christian Vazquez also will replace Sandy Leon behind the dish and do the catching for Price.
