• First baseman Mike Napoli got a rest for Sunday's day game after a night game, and Mike Carp made the start at first base.

"Yes. Rest and keep everyone involved," said Farrell. "Right-handers on the mound, get left-handers off the bench and into today's game. We've got three more righties coming the next series. But as we mentioned the other day, we're just trying to keep everybody as fresh as possible and everyone involved."

• Top prospect Xander Bogaerts, who had a two-hit game on Saturday while starting at short, was back in the lineup on Sunday, playing third base.

"Yeah, and when he came to us, we were going to rotate him through the left side of the infield. And that's what today is," Farrell said.

• The Red Sox entered Sunday having allowed three runs or fewer in 11 straight games, the first time they've done that since 1988. The streak ended in the 7-6 win over the White Sox.
