Red Sox Vs. Rangers Lineups: Andrew Benintendi Returns In Series Opener

The Boston Red Sox kick off their final road series of the season Tuesday when they take on the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Andrew Benintendi returns to the lineup after sitting three consecutive games, while Christian Vazquez and Xander Bogaerts slide back into the order following a days off. Vazquez will be behind the dish for the first time in three games.

Eduardo Rodriquez gets the start for Boston as he continues his pursuit of a 20-win season. He’ll need to win both of his remaining starts to achieve that mark, and he’s trending in the right direction to do so. The left-hander has an ERA of 1.00 over his past seven starts.

Edison Volquez will serve as the opener for Texas.

BOSTON RED SOX (81-75)
