Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: Brock Holt, Michael Chavis Start In Middle Game

The Boston Red Sox look to begin the month of June on a high note after ending May with a loss.

Boston will turn to Rick Porcello in hopes of stopping its three-game losing streak when it takes on the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium for the middle contest of a three-game set.

Manager Alex Cora was forced to shuffle his lineup a bit due to Steve Pearce going on the injured list with a back strain — the same injury that has Mitch Moreland sidelined. Michael Chavis will play first and bat seventh, while Brock Holt gets the start at second and will bat sixth. Sandy Leon will handle the catching duties for Porcello.

New York will send Domingo Germán to the mound, who’s been dominant for the Yankees this season with a 9-1 record.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

Mookie Betts, RF
Andrew Benintendi, LF
J.D. Martinez, DH
Rafael Devers, 3B
Xander Bogaerts, SS
Brock Holt, 2B
Michael Chavis, 1B
Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
Sandy Leon, C

Rick Porcello, RHP (4-4, 4.41 ERA)

DJ LeMahieu, 2B
Luke Voit, 1B
Aaron Hicks, CF
Gary Sanchez, C
Gleyber Torres, SS
Kendrys Morales, DH
