Stat of the Day: The Sox are still the only team in the major that hasn’t lost four straight this season.

Notes: Having split the first two games of the three-game weekend set with the Yankees, the Red Sox are looking to avoid losing their third straight series. They’ve only dropped three straight series once the season … The Sox have lost six of their last nine and seven on their past 12 … They are 7-4 for the season against the Yankees. The two teams play seven games in Sept. Three at Fenway … Through the first 12 games of a stretch that will see the Red Sox play 16 of 19 on the road, the Sox are 5-7 … Dempster is 0-5 in seven starts against the Yankees with a 6.98 ERA … Sabathia is 3-5 with a 6.06 ERA in his past 10 starts. He’s given up 26 home runs this season, 14 on the road … David Ortiz is hitting .378 (17-for-45) with three homers and six RBIs in his past 11 games … Will Middlebrooks has hit safely in all seven games since being recalled. Over that stretch, he’s hitting .435 (10-for-23) with two doubles and three RBIs.
