Notes: The Sox are 5-2 on their road trip … Doubront is 2-0, 3.00 in two starts against Chicago. Both were last season … Quintana has one career appearance against the Sox. He threw eight scoreless innings last July 19. That was the game the Sox won on a Cody Ross walk-off homer off Addison Reed … Pedroia has hit in 12 straight (22 for 49) with six extra-base hits and eight RBIs … Saltalamacchia is 13 of his last 34 with six extra-base hits … The Red Sox bullpen has allowed one earned run over 22 innings on the road trip … Ellsbury is 3 for 24 on the trip … Victorino is out with a left hamstring strain he suffered Monday night.
