Monday's Red Sox-Rays lineups: Sandoval sits vs. lefty, Wright tries to bounce back


The Red Sox have their traditional Patriots’ Day early wake-up call for an an 11:05 a.m. start at Fenway Park, where they’ll conclude their four-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Switch-hitting Pablo Sandoval, who leads the team in home runs (3) and RBI (9) despite a .143 average (6-for-42), is out of the lineup against Rays left-hander Blake Snell (0-1, 3.18 ERA) and right-handed hitting Marco Hernandez (.300) gets the start at third base. Hanley Ramriez, who appeared to injure his hamstring running the bases in the Red Sox' 7-5 victory on Sunday, is back in the lineup at DH. 

Knuckleballer Steven Wright (0-1, 13.50), roughed up in his previous start against the Orioles (eight runs, four homers in 1 1/3 innings), looks to rebound from that brief outing.
