Notes: Ryan Roberts was designated for assignment to make room for Brock Holt on the Red Sox roster. Farrell said Holt has clearly earned the promotion from Pawtucket... Holt is batting .380/.446/.600 with 6 doubles, a triple, and a HR for the PawSox. ... David Ortiz had a scheduled night off tonight, so Mike Napoli moves to DH, Mike Carp takes over first base duties... Carp is 2-for-14 against Orioles starter Chris Tillman... Koji Uehara is available tonight after working last night in Chicago... Will Middlebrooks is set to begin a rehab assignment next week... A win tonight would pull the Red Sox out of last place for the first time in a week... Sox play 15 of their next 18 games at home through May 7... Tillman worked five innings against Boston on Opening Day, gave up a run and was not involved in the decision.... Chris Davis is 11-for-32 (.344) and Nick Markakis is 19-for-57 (.333) off John Lackey.
