Xander on fire at the plate

FACING ROOKIES: Tonight Boston faces Baltimore rookie Mike Wright…The last 8 rookie starters facing the Red Sox have allowed 45 ER in 36.2 IP (11.05 ERA)…None of the last 10 rookies to start against Boston have earned a win, going a combined 0-6.

XANDER, MEET TED: Xander Bogaerts, who turns 23 on 10/1, ranks 2nd in the AL in AVG (.321) and hits (175)…He is the first Red Sox with at least 175 hits in a season before turning 23 since Ted Williams in 1940 (193).

PAPI SEEKS SOX RECORDS: David Ortiz is 1 homer shy of his 6th career 35-HR season, all with the Red Sox…His 5 such seasons are currently tied for the most in franchise history, along with Jimmie Foxx, Manny Ramirez, and Ted Williams.
ยท Ortiz is 4 RBI shy of reaching 100 for the 9th time in his career, all since joining the Red Sox in 2003…It would tie Ted Williams for the most 100-RBI seasons in team history.
