They are Sedan Rafaela (center fielder), Rob Refsnyder (left fielder), Justin Turner (designated hitter), Rafael Devers (third baseman), Adam Duvall (right fielder), Pablo Reyes (second baseman), Trevor Story (shortstop), Bobby Dalbec (first baseman), and Liz McGuire. (Catcher)’s lineup was announced.
The starting pitcher is Nick Pivetta.
Excluding Devers and Maguire, seven batters come into the right-handed batter’s box.
This is a lineup with left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin in mind. Ryu Hyun-jin is showing better performance this season with a hitting percentage of 0.188 against left-handed batters and an OPS of 0.590 compared to when he faced right-handed batters (0.229/0.673).
Left-handed hitters Masataka Yoshida and Alex Verdugo wait on the bench along with another left-handed hitter, Willier Abreu.
On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin faces two old colleagues, Turner and Maguire.
In addition, Duvall and Story, who have faced each other many times in the same district, will also face each other. It can be said to be a burdensome match given that he has a lot of experience dealing with him.
Boston recorded 22 wins and 17 losses against left-handed starters this season, showing better results than when it faced right-handed starters (52 wins and 58 losses).
