Red Sox Game 1 lineup: Jonny Gomes in left, Jarrod Saltalamacchia catching

October 04, 2013 - 8:15 am

The Red Sox will feature right-handed hitter Jonny Gomes in left field for Game 1 of the best-of-five American League Division Series, with Daniel Nava available in a reserve role, against Rays left-hander Matt Moore. Gomes is just 2-for-12 with a double against Moore, while Nava is 0-for-3 against him. Meanwhile, Saltalamacchia is just 0-for-1 against Moore, while David Ross has never faced him. It is Saltalamacchia who will be behind the plate for Game 1, which presumably means that Ross will get the Game 2 start against Rays left-hander David Price.
