Notes: The Sox are 5-2 on a road trip that ends today. They start the day with a one-game lead on the Yankees. … At 79-50, the Sox are a win away from being 30 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2007 season. … Miller gets another start after a solid performance against Kansas City (5.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K). He has faced Texas once in his career, throwing an inning of relief in 2006. That could play to his advantage. Only Yorvit Torreable (0 for 3) and Ian Kinsler (0 for 1) have faced him before. … Ogando was 10-3, 2.72 in his first 18 starts of the season. He is 2-2, 5.19 since in six starts. The workload of being a starter may have caught up to him. Ogando threw 72.1 innings (majors and minors) last season and is at 147.1 this season. … Crawford is 9 for 26 on the trip with two homers and eight RBIs.
Stat of the Day: The Sox are trying to win a series in Texas for the first time since Sept. 5-7, 2008.
