Stat of the Day: The Sox are 13-5 in interleague games. Only the Pirates (15-5) have more interleague wins. The Rockies are 4-14.


Notes: The Sox took two games from the Rockies at Fenway in June. But they trail the all-time series, 5-7, and are 2-4 at Coors Field. That does not include the 2007 World Series, however … Lackey is 17-9, 3.08 in 36 career interleague games, 2-2, 2.48 in four starts this season. He beat the Rockies June 26, allowing two runs over seven innings and striking out 12 without a walk … Chatwood is 0-6, 6.86 in five major league starts since July 31. He has not faced the Sox since April 21, 2011, when he was with the Angels … The Sox are 14-6 in September. That matches the total number of wins they had in September 2011 (7-20) and 2012 (7-19) … Colorado first baseman Todd Helton, who is retiring after the season, will play his final two home games against the Sox. In 17 years, he is a career .345/.441/.606 hitter at Coors Field and .287/.386/.470 on the road … Will Middlebrooks is 4 of his last 35 over 10 games with one RBI and no extra-base hits … Jackie Bradley Jr. is 5 of his last 10 with two extra-base hits … The Sox have 36 successful stolen bases in a row.
