Red Sox lineup: Ortiz at 1B, Youk at 3B

The Red Sox (45-31) look to take the rubber game of a three-game set with the Giants (40-33) Sunday at AT&T Park. Win or lose, this game will signal the end of a successful run through interleague play in 2010, as the Sox enter Sunday with a 12-5 record vs. NL foes.

 

It is the very definition of a marquee pitching matchup as Red Sox ace Jon Lester (8-3, 3.03 ERA) opposes two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum (8-2, 2.86 ERA). David Ortiz gets his first start of the series, playing first base and hitting third. Adrian Beltre has the day off as Kevin Youkilis moves to third base.

 

Red Sox:

 

Scutaro, 6

Nava, 7

Ortiz, 3

Youkilis, 5

Martinez, 2

Drew, 9

Hall, 4

McDonald, 8

Lester -- SP

Cameron, Sox 'pen win over Giants

Though Clay Buchholz was knocked out of Saturday's contest after pitching just one inning due to a hyperextended left knee, the Red Sox bullpen proved up to the task of taking a four-run advantage and navigating it to a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco. Seven Sox relievers combined to allow just two runs over eight innings, with particularly noteworthy performances by Scott Atchison (2 1/3 innings, one run), Dustin Richardson (who inherited a first-and-third jam with no outs in the sixth, and permitted just one run to score) and closer Jonathan Papelbon.

 

Papelbon, pitching for the first time since blowing saves on back-to-back nights in Colorado, sprinted through a perfect ninth inning, getting a pair of groundouts and a weak pop-out. He earned his 17th save, while Atchison claimed the victory.

 

The Sox got all of their offense in the first two innings against Giants starter Madison Bumgarner, who was making...

Sox acquire A's OF/2B Patterson

The Red Sox struck a deal with Oakland for second baseman/outfielder Eric Patterson, acquiring the 27-year-old in exchange for minor league pitcher Fabian Williamson.

 

Patterson is hitting .204 with a .255 OBP, .408 slugging mark and .662 OPS in 45 games with four homers and six steals for the A's this year. He has a career line of .224/.301/.340/.641. In parts of four big league seasons, he has played 32 of his 134 games at second base, the position where the Sox are seeking reinforcements after Dustin Pedroia landed on the disabled list.

 

Williamson was acquired by the Sox prior to the start of the 2010 season from the Mariners in exchange for reliever David Aardsma. He turned in a tremendous performance last year for Single-A Greenville, going 10-5 with a 2.42 ERA. With Hi-A Salem this year, the 21-year-old left-hander was 4-3 with a 3.72 ERA.
