BALTIMORE -- With the Red Sox having sewn up home-field advantage throughout the postseason, the team features a lineup unlike anything seen in its first 161 games of 2013. John Lackey, the scheduled starter, was scratched in favor of rookie Allen Webster, who will likely be limited to a few innings in what is being treated functionally as a bullpen game. Behind him, the Sox will feature a number of players off the bench in their lineup in the season finale against the Orioles and right-handed starter Chris Tillman. RED SOX LINEUP Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Xander Bogaerts, SS David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Mike Carp, LF Will Middlebrooks, 3B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C John McDonald, 2B Quintin Berry, RF Allen Webster, SP
