Red Sox Vs. Astros Lineups: Michael Chavis Leading Off In Series Finale


Take Our Survey

The Boston Red Sox are shaking things up in a big way as they look to avoid getting swept by the best team in baseball.

Michael Chavis is set to bat leadoff and play second base for the Sox on Sunday in the series finale of a three-game set with the Houston Astros at Fenway Park.

That’s far from the only change though. Catcher Christian Vazquez will hit fifth, and he’ll be followed by first baseman Steve Pearce. Eduardo Nunez will bat eighth, serving as the designated hitter.

Chris Sale will be on the mound for the Red Sox. He’ll be opposed by Wade Miley.
