Stat of the Day: The Red Sox are coming off their eighth walk-off win of the season. The last time they had eight before the all-star break was 1953.


Notes: The Sox wrap up a nine-game home stand before heading on a 10-game West Coast trip … They have won seven of their past eight games and sit 18 games above .500 … The Sox are 6-2 in interleague play this season and have won 14 of their last 19 against the National League … Allen Webster is making his first interleague start. He went six innings in his last outing, giving up six hits, striking out three and not playing into the decision in the Red Sox’ win over the Blue Jays … Stults is making his first start against the Sox and his first at Fenway. It will be the 11th road start this season. In 11 starts since May 7, he’s gone 4-4 with a 2.80 ERA, but went just 3.2 innings in his last outing against Miami, giving up 6 runs (5 earned) … Koji Uehara, who earned the win Wednesday night, pitched consecutive days for the ninth time … Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hit streak to 13 games with a single Wednesday, his longest since 2011 … David Ortiz was intentionally walked for the 12th and 13th times Wednesday night, tying him with Miguel Cabrera, Robinson Cano and Joey Votto for the major league lead.
