Stat of the Day: The Padres have not won a road series since sweeping a two-game series from the Orioles May 14-15. Since then, they are 0-4-2 in series away from Petco Park.


Notes: The Boston Police Department advises fans heading to tonight’s game to use public transportation because Storrow Drive will be closed and the July 4 concert rehearsal on the Esplanade will create heavy Back Bay-area traffic … Volquez, who turns 30 today, was sharp in his last outing on Friday, allowing seven hits and two earned runs in six innings while striking out eight and walking one … After he starts tonight, there will be only three MLB teams Lester has not pitched against – the Dodgers, Reds and Red Sox … The Padres have batted .220 during a 2-8 stretch … The Red Sox are averaging 5.9 runs and 11.7 hits over their last seven contests … Jacoby Ellsbury’s hitting streak is at 12 games … The Red Sox lead the majors in runs with 435 and RBIs with 424 and are tied for the lead in extra-base hits with Baltimore with 296.
