Stat of the Day: Red Sox pitchers have a 1.48 ERA in eight games against Seattle this year. Since 1921, it is their lowest mark in a season series of at least six games against any opponent.

Notes: The road trip comes to an end tonight for the Sox, who snapped a seven-game losing streak on Tuesday with a 4-3 win. … The Sox are 1-7 on the trip, getting outscored 61-20. … Cook is 1-7, 5.67 in his last 10 starts. But he pitched perhaps the best game of the year for a Red Sox starter when he beat Seattle on June 29 at Safeco. Cook threw a two-hit shutout without a walk and struck out two. He threw 58 of 81 pitches for strikes. Seattle hitters are an aggregate 3 of 39 against Cook in their careers. … Millwood is 0-4, 5.97 in his last six starts and hasn’t won since July 28. … Pedroia has a 14-game hit streak. He is 24 of 61 in the streak with nine extra-base hits.

Song of the Day: “Street Fighting Man” by The Rolling Stones.
