Extra Bases

Lugo scratched; Coco still out

Julio Lugo (back tightness) was pencilled in to play short here this afternoon against the Twins (1 p.m.), but after speaking with assistant trainer Mike Reinold, Terry Francona decided to keep him out and probably will not play him today, either.

Coco Crisp (groin) remains out and is still undergoing treatment, and Francona expressed some doubt whether he’ll go tomorrow.
