Lineup changes (updated)

The Orioles haven’t posted their lineup, but you’ll find Miguel Tejada serving as the designated hitter today to provide a little rest. Scott Moore is starting at third base.

Corey Patterson is dealing with some leg soreness that isn’t considered serious. He probably could pinch-hit if needed. Luke Scott is starting in left field and Julio Lugo will lead off.

Also, Craig Tatum is catching today. Not only is Matt Wieters scuffling at the plate - he broke an 0-for-20 streak with a double last night - he’s also had some trouble behind it. He isn’t blocking balls as effectively, which could be another sign that he needs a break.

Here’s the Red Sox lineup:
Scutaro SS
Pedroia 2B
Ortiz DH
Youkilis 1B
Martinez C
Beltre 3B
Hall LF
Cameron CF
McDonald RF

Lackey RHP

And here’s the Orioles lineup:
Julio Lugo 2B
Miguel Tejada DH
Nick Markakis RF
Ty Wigginton 1B
Luke Scott LF
Adam Jones CF
Scott Moore 3B
Craig Tatum C
Cesar Izturis SS

Brian Matusz LHP
