Red Sox Vs. Rangers Lineup: Xander Bogaerts Returns, David Price Starts


The Boston Red Sox have been on quite the roll of late, and they’ll look to continue their recent hot streak Tuesday night at Globe Life Park.

The Red Sox have won five consecutive games, the latest of which was an extra-inning victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Boston will hand the ball to David Price in Game 2 of the series against the Rangers, and the lineup will receive an added boost in the form of Xander Bogaerts.

Bogaerts missed the past two games with groin tightness, but he’ll bat third and play shortstop Tuesday night.

Monday night’s hero, Andrew Benintendi, also returns to the starting lineup as he will bat sixth and play left field. Mitch Moreland will get the start at first base against his old team and hit fourth.
