The Red Sox lineup is in (thanks to Sean McAdam of Comcast Sports Net), and the "back-up" catcher, Jason Varitek, is starting again:
J.D. Drew RF; Dustin Pedroia 2B; Adrian Gonzalez 1B; Kevin Youkilis 3B; David Ortiz DH; Jed Lowrie SS; Carl Crawford LF; Jason Varitek C; Jacoby Ellsbury CF. (Josh Beckett P)
Here at Hadlock Field, Portland leads 2-0 after the first inning. Ryan Lavarnway walked with bases loaded. Tim federowicz scored on a wild pitch.
Portland starter Brock Huntzinger allowed a lead-off double and then induced three fly outs.
