Red Sox Vs. Mets Lineups: Hunter Renfroe Begins Series Opener On Bench

The Red Sox can make it six straight wins


September 21, 2021

The Boston Red Sox get back to work Tuesday night with some interleague play against the New York Mets.

Boston opens the quick two-game set at Fenway Park after a day off Monday. The Red Sox are fresh off a sweep of the Baltimore Orioles as they continue their push to maintain a spot in the American League wild-card race.

As for Boston’s lineup, it will look a tad different than Sunday. Hunter Renfroe will begin the game on the bench. Alex Verdugo will take over in right field and bat sixth, Kyle Schwarber will bat second and serve as the designated hitter, meaning J.D. Martinez will play left.

Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill in search of his 12th win of the season, opposite of Marcus Stroman.
