• The Red Sox picked up their 90th win of the season Friday. It marked the fifth time in the past seven years since the 2007 World Series team that the Red Sox have won at least 90 games. The club has already increased its win total by 21 from last year, marking the franchise's largest increase in wins during a full season since 1946, when the Sox increased their win total by 33.

• One day after Jake Peavy took a line drive to his right wrist, manager John Farrell said Friday there was nothing to worry about. Peavy expected he would be fine after X-rays came back negative Thursday night, and Farrell said that there was no lingering effect.

• Essentially, the Red Sox are currently operating with a six-man rotation, but that could eventually be cut to four as the playoffs near. Farrell said they'll make that decision when they have to, though he suggested they could either trim a pitcher from the playoff roster to make room for an extra position player or send one of their starters who has experience working out of relief to the bullpen.

• Triple-A Pawtucket is still playing in the International League playoffs, but the Red Sox expect to add more bodies to the big league club when the PawSox's season ends.

• Closer Koji Uehara pitched a perfect ninth Friday and has retired 37 consecutive batters faced, the longest stretch in club history and longest for any reliever since Bobby Jenks retired 41 straight batters in 2007. According to SABR, Jenks' streak is the longest for a reliever.
