Notes: Lester has been rocked at Progressive Field, giving up 17 earned runs in 22.1 career innings. He is 3-1 with a 4.53 ERA in eight career starts against Cleveland overall. … Ellsbury is hitless in his last 14 at-bats. … The Sox, Rays and Astros are the only winless teams in baseball. … Happy birthday to Bobby Doerr, who turns 93 today.
Stat of the day: The last Red Sox team to start 0-6 was in 1945.
