Stat of the Day: The Red Sox are 34-46 vs. righthanded starting pitchers this season.

Notes: This is Buchholz's fourth start against the Orioles this season. He's 1-0 with a 5.00 ERA in 18 innings, and won his last outing vs. the Orioles on June 7 ... A loss would make the Red Sox .500 on the road this season. They have lost 11 of their last 18 on the road ... Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched 5.2 innings for Pawtucket on Wednesday and allowed 5 runs and five hits to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, who won 5-1. Matsuzaka took the loss ... The Orioles are looking for their second sweep of the Red Sox this season. The Orioles won three straight at Fenway Park May 4-6.
