September 13, 2013 - 1:12 pm

The Red Sox are back at home against the Yankees on Friday after a 5-2 roadtrip to New York and Tampa Bay. After sitting on Thursday, Shane Victorino is back in right field and batting second, while Mike Napoli gets the day off against right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, with Mike Carp getting the start at first base. Kuroda was the starter for the Yankees last Sunday in the only game of the four-game set in the Bronx that the home team won. Also of note: Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher, marking the first time since he sat out five consecutive games last week that he has started back-to-back games. He'll be working with starter John Lackey. For batter vs. starting pitcher matchup histories, click here.
