Stat of the Day: The Red Sox are 11-17 against the White Sox the last four seasons, 6-9 in Chicago.

Notes: The Red Sox are coming off a three-game sweep of the Twins. … How the offense rates in the AL: first in doubles, second in batting average and slugging, third in runs, total bases and OPS, fourth in OBP and sixth in home runs. And that’s with only a week of Jacoby Ellsbury and nothing from Carl Crawford. … Ross has an RBI in four straight games. … Aviles was 6 of 13 with four extra-base hits, five RBIs and five runs scored in the Twins series. … Doubront held the Yankees to one run in six innings in his last start.
