Notes: Lackey is 4-0 with a 2.52 ERA in his last four starts. He has not faced the Indians this season. … The Sox are 2-4 against the Indians, all six games having been played in Cleveland. The Sox will not see Ubaldo Jimenez in this series. He is slated to start on Friday against Texas. … The Sox are coming off winning two of three in Chicago. … The Sox are 14-12 against the AL Central. … Gonzalez has a 10-game hitting streak and has seven straight games with multiple hits. … Picking the AL Player of the Month for July should be pretty easy. Pedroia led the league in batting average (.411), on-base percentage (.465) and slugging percentage (.723).


Stat of the Day: From Elias, Dustin Pedroia led the majors in July with 46 hits, the most hits for a Red Sox player during July of any season since 1939. In July of 1939, Bobby Doerr had 52 hits, Ted Williams 48 and Jimmie Foxx 47.
