THUMBS DOWN: Closer Joel Hanrahan allowed a run in the ninth on two hits and walk.

MEDICAL REPORT: Lefthander Franklin Morales threw in the bullpen for the first time since straining how lower back. He did not travel with the team to New York so he can continue working out. “I feel pretty good,” Morales said. “I can get going.” … Outfielder Mitch Maier got in his first game since spraining his left wrist on March 15. Maier is leaded for Triple A Pawtucket.

He will then fly to New York. … The Sox have sold out all 33 Grapefruit League games played at Jet Blue Park since the facility opened last season.
