Shane Victorino is a late scratch and Pablo Sandoval who took a fastball off the knee Tuesday, is out of the Red Sox starting lineup again Thursday night against Texas.
Three takes from Wednesday: 1. It'll take more than Rusney. 2. Pedroia's RISP production puzzling. 3. 'Pen improving, just like rotation.
The Red Sox offense may be slacking, but Shane Victorino is doing his part. Perhaps he'll start to get even more time.
Joe Kelly didn't get off to a great start - and then got stung with a baseball in his throwing hand. But that's when he settled down.
