Notes: The Red Sox have lost three straight, six of seven and 12 of 17. They are 10 games out of first place with 73 games left to play. … The White Sox have won seven of 10. … Workman has allowed 10 runs on 12 hits over 10 innings in his last two starts. He has faced the White Sox once in his career, going 1.1 innings in relief on Sept. 1, 2013. … Danks is 3-6, 4.97 in 10 starts against the Red Sox. He faced the Red Sox on April 16 in Chicago, allowing one run over six innings. … Mike Napoli is 3 of 24 over seven games on the homestand with one extra-base, two RBIs and 12 strikeouts. … A.J. Pierzynski has not hit a home run in 123 at-bats going back to May 24. … Xander Bogaerts is 4 of his last 58 (.069) with no extra-base hits and one RBI over his last 15 games. … Stephen Drew is 0 for his last 10 with five strikeouts. It’s not just his fault. But the Red Sox were 27-29 before Drew was added to the roster and 12-21 since. … Jackie Bradley is 14 of his last 46 (.304) over his last 14 games. He has a five-game hit streak and is 6 of 6 in stolen bases this season. Bradley is tied with Brock Holt for the team lead.
