CLEVELAND — Just caught the “Women Who Rock” exhibit at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Beautiful day here so far.
A few Red Sox notes for you . . .
• With Dustin Pedroia out of the lineup today for a rest, Drew Sutton will get his first start. Francona also indicated yesterday that he could give Jed Lowrie a day off sometime soon. So Sutton could be an important man in the coming days.
• It’s only five innings, but Daniel Bard has allowed five runs on six hits and four walks at Progressive Field in six career appearances.
• Josh Beckett has allowed one run in 23.1 innings this month.
• Rich Hill in 12 career appearances for the Sox: 9.2 IP, 8 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 12 K.
• The Tribe is 19-4 at home, their best start ever.
Check back later for the lineups and more on the game.
