BOSTON (AP) - Trot Nixon, the former Red Sox outfielder who beat Boston with an extra-inning single in Game 2, was back in Cleveland's starting lineup for Saturday night's sixth game of the AL championship series.
The Red Sox also made a lineup change, putting rookie Jacoby Ellsbury in center field in place of Coco Crisp, batting eighth. Crisp was batting .143 in the series with six strikeouts.
Nixon, who played the first 13 years in the Boston organization, replaced Franklin Gutierrez in right field for the Indians. Gutierrez is batting .133 in the series, but hit a three-run homer in Game 2.
