Red Sox Vs. Reds Lineup: Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia Return After Absence


September 24, 2017

The Boston Red Sox will play the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday in their final road game of the regular season, and they’ll welcome back two of their best players.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right fielder Mookie Betts sat out Boston’s 5-0 win over Cincinnati on Saturday with a sore knee and sore foot, respectively. But both players are back in the lineup Sunday as the Sox look for their sixth consecutive victory.

Doug Fister will get the start for Boston at Great American Ball Park, as the right-hander tries to make his case for a spot in the team’s postseason rotation. But he’s got his work cut out for him, as Eduardo Rodriguez’s impressive performance Saturday raised the bar for starters hoping to make the cut.

Here are both teams’ lineups for Sunday’s game:

RED SOX (90-64)
Xander Bogaerts, SS
Dustin Pedroia, 2B
Andrew Benintendi, LF
Mookie Betts, RF
Mitch Moreland, 1B
Rafael Devers, 3B
Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
Sandy Leon, C
Doug Fister, RHP (5-8, 4.89 ERA)

REDS (66-89)
Billy Hamilton, CF
Zack Cozart, SS
Joey Votto, 1B
Scooter Gennett, 2B
Eugenio Suarez, 3B
Scott Schebler, RF
Adam Duvall, LF
Tucker Barnhart, C
Jackson Stephens, RHP (2-0, 4.80 ERA)
