This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

* The Red Sox took two of three games at U.S. Cellular Field in April, improving to 14-5 against the White Sox since July 30, 2011. That includes five consecutive wins by Boston at Fenway Park.

* Despite mustering just two hits themselves, the White Sox shut out Seattle on Sunday, 1-0. It was Chicago’s first victory when collecting no more than two hits since September 2009.

* After dropping two of three games to the Orioles, the Red Sox have fallen 10 games below .500 (39-49) for the first time in 2014. It’s only the second season since 1998 (2012) that Boston has dipped at least that low.

* With half the season remaining, Jose Abreu (16) needs to hit one more home run on the road to match the highest single-season total ever by a White Sox rookie (Ron Kittle, 17 in 1983).

* White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham went 0-for-13 against Seattle this weekend. For the season overall, while Beckham is batting just .193 (26-for-135) when facing pitchers for the first time in a game, he’s over .300 (.309, 38-for-123) when getting more than one look them.

* With a 3-for-6 performance Sunday, Dustin Pedroia has collected three hits in five of eight games since June 28, when he’s batted .500 (16-for-32). He had managed at least three hits on just four occasions over his previous 78 games this season.
