St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup for Monday's Game 5 of the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Victorino, who is hitless in 10 at-bats against St. Louis with two strikeouts and a walk, was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup due to lower back tightness.
Jonny Gomes, who smacked a three-run homer in Game 4 to help the Red Sox even the series, will get his second straight start in place of Victorino.
Gomes will play left field and bat fourth, followed by Daniel Nava, who will start in right.
Second baseman Dustin Pedroia will slide into the two hole to fill the void vacated by Victorino, while first baseman David Ortiz will move from fourth to third in the order.
