Updated: October 28, 2013

St. Louis, MO ( – 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

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.
