LONDON -- There was some concern from the Red Sox' side of things when Xander Bogaerts pulled up lame Saturday with cramps in both calves. But after the Sox' 17-13 loss the shortstop suggested the ailment wouldn't be a big deal.

Evidently, he was right.

Bogaerts is back in the Red Sox' lineup in the final game of the London Series Sunday, hitting third.

Not in the "hosts" lineup is Andrew Benintendi who is still dealing with a lingering quad issue. Taking his place in left field is Sam Travis.

"Just his legs. Just heavy legs," said Red Sox manager Alex Cora Sunday morning. "He felt his quad a few weeks ago. It’s nothing serious but I think with the conditions I think it makes sense to take advantage of the whole weekend and get him back on Tuesday to start."

Here is the Red Sox' lineup with Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound:

Mookie Betts RF

Rafael Devers 3B

Xander Bogaerts SS

J.D. Martinez DH

Michael Chavis 1B

Christian Vazquez C

Jackie Bradley CF

Eduardo Nunez 2B

Sam Travis LF
