BOSTON (CBS) – After making his Major League debut on Tuesday night, Xander Bogaerts will get Wednesday afternoon off.

Despite lefty Barry Zito getting the start for the Giants, Stephen Drew will be back at short stop for the Red Sox as they close out their three-game set in San Francisco. Though he usually struggles against left-handers, Drew is 11-for-33 with eight RBIs against Zito for his career.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
