Red Sox Vs. Yankees Game 2 Lineups: Marco Hernandez, Michael Chavis Start


Things didn’t go so well for the Boston Red Sox on Saturday afternoon, but they’re shaking things up for the nightcap.

After delivering an uninspired performance against the Yankees in the matinee of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium, Boston will have a chance to redeem itself against New York in the nightcap.

The lineup will feature plenty of changes, with Mitch Moreland, Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Sandy Leon all coming out. Moreland will be replaced at first base by Michael Chavis, who will bat eighth. Marco Hernandez will play second base and bat ninth, while Christian Vazquez will catch Brian Johnson — who was activated from the injured list Saturday and is making his first appearance since June 22. Andrew Benintendi will occupy center field in place of Bradley, with Sam Travis moving over to left.

Chad Green will start for the Yankees.
