ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox will feature the same lineup for Game 4 against Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson that they featured in Game 3 against fellow right-hander Alex Cobb. While some members of the Sox lineup have struggled against the Rays starter (including Daniel Nava, who has a .154/.214/.154 line against him, as well as both Will Middlebrooks and Mike Napoli, both of whom are 1-for-12 with no walks against him), the Sox are comfortable standing pat against a pitcher who had the third worst ERA (5.17) of any of the 81 starters with enough innings to qualify for the ERA title. Jake Peavy will make his third career playoff start, and his first since 2006 with the Padres. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will remain behind the plate for him. RED SOX LINEUP Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Daniel Nava, LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Stephen Drew, SS Will Middlebrooks, 3B Jake Peavy, SP
