Stat of the Day: Franklin Morales has not allowed a run in 23 consecutive road appearances, a stretch of 20.1 innings. He last allowed a run on the road on May 25, 2011. In 22 innings at Fenway Park over that same stretch, he has allowed 17 earned runs.

Notes: The two-game series ends tonight with two young lefties meeting for the second time this season. Doubront allowed four runs in five innings against the Rays at Fenway on April 15 in a game the Red Sox won 6-4. He did not get the decision. Moore allowed six runs on eight hits in 6.1 innings and took the loss. ... Doubront is 0-1, 4.61 in five career outings against the Rays. ... Moore is 0-1, 6.75 in two appearances against the Sox. ... Middlebrooks is 6 of his last 32 with 12 strikeouts. ... Gonzalez has gone 103 at-bats without a home run. ... The teams were 1 for 19 with runners in scoring position last night.

Song of the Day: "Protection" by Donna Summer.
