Notes: After a 4-2 homestand, the Red Sox have three games in Cleveland before going back to Fenway Park for a 10-game homestand … The Sox will be facing Terry Francona as a manager for the first time since July 4, 2000, when he managed the Phillies. Francona was 8-5 against the Sox when he managed the Phillies … The Indians have a few former Red Sox players (Mike Aviles, Justin Masterson, Rich Hill, Matt Albers) along with former Sox coach Brad Mills, who is Francona’s third base coach. Kevin Cash, a former Sox catcher, is the Indians bullpen coach … Doubront is 1-1, 4.35, in two starts against the Indians, both last year … Jimenez is 1-1, 9.00 in three career starts against the Sox, two coming last year … Jimenez is 13-22, 5.39, in 44 starts for the Indians since being being acquired from the Rockies … The Sox are 13-13 against the Indians the last three seasons … The Sox hit .201 and scored 20 runs in their six-game homestand … Pedroia has reached base safely in all 12 games and 22 straight going back to last season … Jackie Bradley Jr. is 3 for 31 in the majors, 0 for his last 20 with 10 strikeouts … Stephen Drew (2 for 16) gets a day off.
