Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia aren't going to miss the Red Sox' final regular season game of the year.

Both players have returned to the starting lineup in the Sox' series finale against the Red Sox, with Pedroia hitting second and Betts in the cleanup spot. The second baseman had sat out Saturday due to knee discomfort, while Betts was out after fouling a ball off his foot Friday night.

Here is the Red Sox' batting order with Doug Fister on the mound for the visitors:

Xander Bogaerts SS

Dustin Pedroia 2B

Andrew Benintendi LF

Mookie Betts RF

Mitch Moreland 1B

Rafael Devers 3B

Jackie Bradley Jr. CF

Sandy Leon C

The Red Sox' Magic Number stands at five games, with John Farrell's team entering Sunday with a four-game lead on the Yankees in the American League East.
