Notes: The Cardinals game is a makeup from March 12. … John Lackey will make his start in a minor-league game at 1 p.m. today at the complex. The Sox wanted to get a better look at Bonser, who is expected to go three innings. … Not that it much matters, but the Red Sox have lost six of their last seven games. … The Red Sox have sold out 97 straight home games in spring training. They’ve also played before sellouts in all 18 Grapefruit League games this season, home or away. … Both teams will be supplemented with an assortment of minor leaguers promoted for the day.
