One day after he was replaced in the eighth inning by a pinch-hitter, Xander Bogaerts is out of the Red Sox lineup for the series finale against the White Sox. Despite the presence of a left-hander (Jose Quintana) on the mound for Chicago, Stephen Drew will start at shortstop with Brock Holt at third, Jackie Bradley Jr. in center and Mookie Betts in right. (Here was John Farrell's explanation for why he replaced Bogaerts with Mike Carp in the late innings.) David Ross will be behind the plate for Jon Lester. RED SOX LINEUP Brock Holt, 3B Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jonny Gomes, LF Mookie Betts, RF Stephen Drew, SS David Ross, C Jackie Bradley Jr., CF Jon Lester, SP
