EASTERN STANDARD: Yesterday marked the 1st time this season the Red Sox and Yankees lost on the same day…BOS went 17-2 from 3/29-4/20, and NYY went 17-2 from 4/21-5/10.
>>> Today is the 45th day of the MLB season…On only 3 of them have the Red Sox not held at least a share of 1st place at the start of the day (3/30, 3/31, 5/10).

NO TIME TO REST: The Red Sox are in the midst of a stretch of playing 52 games in 55 days from 4/24-6/17, including 13 straight days with a game from 5/8-20…In that 55-day span, their off days are scheduled for 5/7, 5/21, and 6/4 (all Mondays).

IN GOOD COMPANY: Last night, Chris Sale matched his career high with 15 SO and issued 0 BB in 9.0 IP…He joined Pedro Martinez (4 times) and Roger Clemens (3 times) as the only Red Sox pitchers ever to record 15+ SO and 0 BB in a game.

LEADING OFF: Mookie Betts has scored at least 1 run in 24 of his last 31 games since 4/1…Betts leads the majors with 39 runs scored, the most by a Red Sox player through the club’s first 38 games of a season since at least 1908.

J.D. POWER: J.D. Martinez has hit safely in each of his last 12 games, the 3rd-longest streak of his career and tied for the 2nd-longest active streak in the majors…He has twice hit safely in 14 consecutive games (2014 and 2016 with DET).
>>> During his 12-game hit streak, which began on 4/29, Martinez is batting .420 (21-for-50, 4 HR)…In his last 25 games (since 4/13), he has hit .394 (39-for-99) with 7 HR and 8 2B.
