Red Sox Vs. Pirates Lineups: Josh Winckowski Replaces Nathan Eovaldi In Finale

Boston will be eyeing the sweep of Pittsburgh


August 18

The Boston Red Sox will go for a series sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night as they wrap up their three-game set at PNC Park.

The Red Sox, who are back to .500, have won three straight contests entering the series finale.

Josh Winckowski will fill in for Nathan Eovaldi as the Red Sox skip over his turn in the rotation out of injury precaution. The Pirates will counter with right-hander JT Brubaker.

Jarren Duran will return to the lineup in place of Kiké Hernández, batting ninth and playing center field. Hernández played the first two games of the series after missing the previous 60 due to injury. Bobby Dalbec also will return to the lineup in place of Eric Hosmer at first base.
