Red Sox dig deep into their depth and call up infielder Mike Miller from Triple-A and option right-hander William Cuevas. Miller, who was batting .256 with a .624 OPS at Pawtucket added to 40-man roster. Sox needed another position player after they were forced over the weekend to option infielder Deven Marrero in favor of an extra pitcher (Cuevas).

Rangers still have Red Sox's number

Boston lost two of three to Texas over the weekend, lowering its record vs. the Rangers to 21-38 since the start of 2009. That's the Red Sox's worst record vs. any AL opponent in that span, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

By Dave Dombrowski's count, there were maybe five teams that qualified as sellers a month ago, and the same five are willing to deal now, too. Otherwise, the trade market still hasn't taken shape.

Unlike after Clay Buchholz's previous start, Red Sox manager John Farrell wouldn't commit to the embattled right-hander making his next start. But Farrell also suggested there might not be a better internal option.

Red Sox fall, 6-2, and drop to four games off the Orioles' pace in AL East for the first time since April 12. Rough week for Sox, who went 2-5 and weren't winless but for the grace of a walkoff win Thursday at Fenway and an improbable ninth-inning comeback here Friday night.

Bryce Brentz said his goal in his second big-league call-up and first since the end of the 2014 season was to "enjoy the moment." Hitting his first career homer will help considerably. Brentz cuts the Red Sox's deficit to 3-1, bottom of the sixth

With the Orioles winning again, the Red Sox are in danger of slipping to four games off the pace in the AL East for the first time since April 12. They're trailing, 3-0, heading to the top of the sixth inning.

Steven Wright allowed three hits with his fastball (Moreland's two-run single, Beltre's RBI single, Andrus' three-run triple), which matches his season-high. He also gave up three hits on his fastball June 10 at Minnesota. Including tonight, he has thrown 263 fastballs (16.2 percent of his pitches) and allowed 15 hits, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
