Also in the Red Sox' starting lineup is Brock Holt, who mans third, having gone 1-for-2 against the Seattle ace. A collection of Red Sox have fared fairly well against Hernandez, with Jacoby Ellsbury hitting .286 (6-for-21), David Ortiz going 9-for-29 (.310) and Dustin Pedroia hitting .286 (10-for-35). Struggling vs. the righty have been Mike Napoli (6-for-36, .167), Daniel Nava (2-for-11, .182) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has gone 5-for-25 (.200).
