Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups: Live stream, start time, TV channel, how to watch Saturday’s game (Aug. 1) logo 8/1/2020 By Christopher Smith,

J.D. Martinez is not in the Boston Red Sox lineup Saturday against the New York Yankees. The slugger is just 2-for-23 with one extra-base hit and no RBIs in his past six games dating back to Sunday vs. the Baltimore Orioles.

“It’s awful,” Martinez said about his swing during a Zoom conference call after Friday’s loss to New York. “Yeah, I don’t know. I’m just trying to find it, really. Just grinding away, figuring it out. But I’m sure I’ll get it.”

Martinez will sit despite being 8 for 23 with three homers and two doubles in his career vs. Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka.

Kevin Pillar will serve as the DH and bat second in the order. Andrew Benintendi is back in the lineup Saturday after he did not start Friday.

Benintendi is 9 for 29 (.310) with two homers and two doubles against Tanaka. Xander Bogaerts is 13 for 43 (.302) with two home runs and two doubles. Rafael Devers is 7 for 15 (.467) with one homer and one double against the righty.

The Red Sox scored 22 runs on 24 hits (four home runs) and five walks in three games (8 innings) against Tanaka in 2019.

Tzu-Wei Lin is playing second base as Jose Peraza and Michael Chavis sit.
