After leaving Monday's game against the Blue Jays with neck soreness, Pablo Sandoval returns to the Red Sox lineup Tuesday. Sandoval went 2-for-2 in the game with 3 RBI before leaving in the top of the sixth. He stiffened up after making a diving catch on a pop up bunt in the fourth. Mike Napoli is out for the second straight day. He missed Monday's game with an illness. Daniel Nava will play first in Napoli's place, and Brock Holt gets the start in right field. Ryan Hanigan will catch Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, as the Red Sox lineup goes up against Drew Hutchison. For an extensive look at the matchups, click here. 1. Mookie Betts, CF 2.
