He is 0-2, 3.12 in six career appearances against Baltimore … Gausman, the fourth overall draft pick in 2012, is making his fifth star in the majors … Jacoby Ellsbury’s last six games: 11 for 27, eight runs, three extra-base hits, eight stolen bases. He has an 11-game hit streak … The Sox are 20-12 on the road … The Sox are three games up in the division, matching their largest lead of the season … Dustin Pedroia has reached safely in 21 straight and in 62 of the 67 games this season.
