As expected after suffering a shoulder sprain Monday night against the Rays, Hanley Ramirez is out of the lineup as expected Tuesday night. Allen Craig will start in his place in left, while after recording two hits Monday night, Brock Holt gets the start in right. It's worth noting Mike Napoli jumped ahead of Pablo Sandoval in the the order and will hit cleanup in the absence of Ramirez. After a day off Monday, Blake Swihart is behind the plate catching Rick Porcello as the Red Sox' lineup goes against left-hander Drew Smyly. Here is the complete order: 1. Mookie Betts, CF 2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B 3. David Ortiz, DH 4. Mike Napoli, 1B 5. Pablo Sandoval, 3B 6. Allen Craig, LF 7. Brock Holt, RF 8. Xander Bogaerts, SS 9. Blake Swihart, C Rick Porcello, RHP
