Echoing what John Farrell said Wednesday on Salk & Holley, the Red Sox will sport a different batting order Wednesday against the Blue Jays, as Mike Napoli has been moved down to the seventh spot in the lineup. With the struggling Napoli hitting seventh, Johnny Gomes will hit fifth and Stephen Drew will hit sixth. Jon Lester will take the mound for the Sox as he looks for his first win in the month of August. 1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF 2. Shane Victorino, RF 3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B 4. David Ortiz, DH 5.
