The Red Sox will go for a sweep in Wednesday's day-night doubleheader with the Twins following a 6-3 win in the afternoon. The biggest thing that stands out in the Game 2 lineup is Mookie Betts sliding down to the No. 7 spot. The center fielder went 0-for-4 in Game 1 and his average is down to .242 this season. After sitting this afternoon, Pablo Sandoval is back at third base, while Brock Holt remains in the lineup playing right field. Hanley Ramirez gets the night off as Carlos Peguero will man left field, as the team goes up against Twins right-hander Trevor May. Blake Swihart will catch Red Sox starter Rick Porcello.
