PHILADELPHIA -- With Phillies right-hander Aaron Harang on the mound, the Red Sox will start Daniel Nava in right field, with Shane Victorino starting the game on the bench. Victorino played well during the Red Sox' Opening Day win, drawing a pair of walks and pushing the issue on the basepaths, while making a nice catch against the right field wall. Victorino is, however, 9-for-27 (.333) against Harang for his career, with Nava going 1-for-2. Also sitting is David Ortiz, who comes into the game 5-for-11 with a home run against the Phillies starter. Mike Napoli gets the start at first base after entering Monday's game as a defensive replacement.
