Fantasy Pickups of the Week:

Red Sox put Victorino in Game 6 lineup

The SportsXchange

Outfielder Shane Victorino returns to the Boston lineup for Game 6 of the World Series on Wednesday night against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Victorino missed the two previous games in St. Louis because of tightness in his lower back.

He will hit sixth, down from his normal No. 2 spot, with Dustin Pedroia going from third to second and David Ortiz from fourth to third in the batting order. Mike Napoli is in the cleanup spot and playing first base. He'll be followed by left fielder Jonny Gomes.

Manager John Farrell posted the lineup Wednesday afternoon.

The Red Sox took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series into Game 6. Boston has not won the clinching game of a World Series at home since 1918.
