 THUMBS DOWN: Alfredo Aceves had an adventurous two innings. He allowed a run on three hits and a walk and also committed a throwing error. But he did strike out three.

 MEDICAL REPORT: The Sox had Jacoby Ellsbury back in the lineup after missing two games with a twisted right ankle. He was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk . . . Shane Victorino, who missed Wednesday’s game with a sore right wrist, was 2 for 3.

 AROUND THE BASES: It’s not unusual for players to take a nap before the game. But Aceves found a strange spot for it. He made a bed out of bath towels on the floor in front of his locker and sacked out for a bit . . . The Sox won the vaunted Fort Myers Mayor’s Cup, having taken five of the first six games against the Twins with two to play.


 NEXT GAME: Friday at 1:05 p.m. against the Twins at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers. The Sox will start Ryan Dempster against righthander Cole De Vries.
