There will be morning baseball at Fenway Park and it will feature a unique Red Sox lineup.
Dustin Pedroia will bat lead off in the annual Marathon Monday game with first pitch scheduled for 11:05 against the Orioles. In addition, Blake Swihart will play left field, as the Sox go up against Orioles right-hander Dan Straily.
Andrew Benintendi is out of the lineup after fouling a pitch off his foot Sunday, and so is Jackie Bradley Jr., which means Mookie Betts will play center and J.D. Martinez right.
Christian Vazquez will catch Red Sox spot starter Hector Velazquez.
Here’s the complete Red Sox lineup.
Dustin Pedroia, 2B
Mookie Betts, CF
Mitch Moreland, 1B
J.D. Martinez, RF
Xander Bogaerts, SS
Rafael Devers, 3B
Steve Pearce, DH
Blake Swihart, LF
Christian Vazquez, C
Hector Velazquez, RHP
