Eighteen percent of the runs scored against the Red Sox have been scored by batters who have walked or been hit by a pitch.
Red Sox hitters are batting .359 after an intentional walk to the previous batter. Mike Napoli is 8 for 16 with four home runs and 18 RBIs after an intentional walk.
4 for 10
Jarrod Saltalamacchia is 4 for 10 with three RBIs in extra innings.
The Red Sox are 35-13 when they score first on the road.
90 of 150
Koji Uehara has struck out 90 of the 150 batters against whom he has gotten two strikes.
