Red Sox Vs. Braves Lineups: Kevin Plawecki Boston’s Only Change For Series Finale

After snapping a skid, the Red Sox look to mount a winning streak

by

The Boston Red Sox are sticking with what worked against the Atlanta Braves.

Alex Cora has made only one change for Wednesday’s Red Sox-Braves game, replacing catcher Christian Vázquez with Kevin Plawecki, who starts for the first time since Friday. Plawecki will bat eighth in the finale of the two-game series, occupying the same spot in Boston’s order Vázquez occupied Tuesday in the Red Sox’s 9-4 win over the the Braves.

Plawecki is behind the plate, as Nathan Eovaldi starts on the mound for the Red Sox. The right-handed pitcher has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his six starts this season.

Righty Ian Anderson starts for the Braves.

NESN will air Red Sox-Braves in full, with pregame coverage beginning at 6 p.m. with “Red Sox First Pitch,” followed by “Red Sox Gameday Live” at 6:30 p.m. First pitch from Truist Park is scheduled for 7:20 p.m., and postgame coverage will follow the final out.
