After a 9-2 loss to the New York Yankees in Game 1 of Saturday’s day-night doubleheader, the Boston Red Sox will turn to Brian Johnson for the nightcap in search of a win.
Johnson is 1-1 on the season with a 6.43 ERA and 13 strikeouts through 14 innings. The lefty has been out of action since June 27 with a reported intestinal issue and is hoping he can help Boston get back on track with a win in the second game of the day.
Chad Green will take the mound for the Yankees. He’s 2-3 on the season with a 5.06 ERA and 53 strikeouts.
