Varitek, Lowell will be in lineup tonight

April, 21, 2010
Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona, in his weekly radio interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI, gave some insight on tonight’s Red Sox lineup:

-- He said Jason Varitek, who is hitting a scorching .429 with 3 homers, will catch tonight. It will be the third straight Josh Beckett start with Varitek behind the plate.

-- Mike Lowell, who last night pinch hit for David Ortiz, will DH tonight against Rangers lefthander Matt Harrison. Both Ortiz and Victor Martinez will not be in the starting lineup.

-- J.D. Drew will probably be in right field, Francona said, with last night’s hero Darnell McDonald in center.

-- Francona indicated he has not yet decided how the lineup will look.
