Red Sox change out four batters for Game 3 in New York | Updated: 2018-10-09 05:25:11

The Boston Red Sox will have four new faces in the starting lineup for Monday night's Game 3 as their AL Division Series against the Yankees shifts to New York.

Rafael Devers, Steve Pearce and Brock Holt will move into the infield, replacing Eduardo Nunez, Mitch Moreland and Ian Kinsler.

Christian Vazquez will start behind the plate over Sandy Leon, who went 0-for-5 as the teams split the first two games at Fenway Park.

Nunez was also held without a hit after starting the first two games. He also made an error at third base in Game 2.

Kinsler went 1-for-4 in each of the first two games, while Moreland tweaked his hamstring in Saturday's game.

Boston's top four hitters remain the same -- Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez, and Xander Bogaerts -- before Devers, Pearce, Holt, Vazquez. Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. stays in the lineup hitting ninth.

They will face Yankees right-hander Luis Severino, while Nathan Eovaldi starts for Boston.
