With the Stanley Cup champion Bruins in the house - being honored before the game - the Red Sox will start their standard lineup with one exception as Josh Reddick gets the nod in left field for the disabled Carl Crawford.
The lineup vs. Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo is: Jacoby Ellsbury CF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Kevin Youkilis 3B, David Ortiz DH, J.D. Drew RF, Marco Scutaro SS, Jarrod Saltalamacchia C and Josh Reddick LF, with Tim Wakefield taking his 3-2, 4.39 ERA to the mound as the starting pitcher.
Rickie Weeks, after hitting a leadoff homer and doubling in Saturday night's 4-2 win over the Sox as the DH, returns to his more familiar spot of second base. The Brewers go with: Weeks 2B, Corey Hart RF, Ryan Braun DH, Prince Fielder 1B, Casey McGehee 3B, Yuniesky Betancourt SS, Nyjer Morgan LF, Carlos Gomez CF, Jonathan Lucroy C and Gallardo P.

For the first time since April 29, the Red Sox suffered a loss in a game when the opponent featured a left-handed starter. Brewers southpaw Randy Wolf spread nine hits over seven innings, limiting the Sox to just two runs in Milwaukee's 4-2 victory, thus snapping a streak of 11 straight Sox wins in games against southpaw starters.
Wolf's fine effort prevented Sox starter Jon Lester from becoming the first pitcher in the majors to 10 wins. Lester allowed back-to-back homers to start the game -- the first by leadoff man Rickie Weeks having come one pitch after Adrian Gonzalez dropped a foul pop-up, with Corey Hart following with a longball on the next pitch. Lester's former batterymate, Brewers catcher George Kottaras, also delivered a solo homer to start a two-run third inning. The three homers allowed matched a career-high against Lester, the first such instance having come on Opening Day this year against the Rangers.
The Sox had at least one...

One day after he suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain, Carl Crawford is out of the Red Sox lineup. While a move has not yet been announced, outfielder Josh Reddick -- who hit two homers for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday -- is back up with the team to provide outfield depth in light of the injury.
Reddick, however, is not in the Sox' starting lineup on a day when left-hander Randy Wolf is on the mound for the Brewers. Neither, for that matter, is the left-handed hitting J.D. Drew (4-for-11 with two homers against Wolf), as the Sox will instead feature Darnell McDonald and Mike Cameron in the two outfield corners.

Bruins center Marc Savard was able to make it to Boston from his Peterborough, Ontario home to celebrate the team's Stanley Cup victory with his teammates at Saturday's rolling rally.

Savard, who has six more years on his contract, did not indicate whether he plans to retire or try to make a return next season, saying he did not want to take the spotlight away from what his teammates had accomplished. He did say, however that he is definitely feeling the negative effects of his most recent concussion, suffered in January in a game against the Avalanche.
"I’m feeling better. I mean I still have my days here and there," Savard, who noted his short-term memory problems are "terrible," said. "But it’s been tough, that’s for sure, especially watching and stuff...
