James Loney says he's always enjoyed the atmosphere that comes with playing in Fenway Park.
With Saturdays trade with the Dodgers, the suspension of Alfredo Aceves, and David Ortizs ailing right Achilles, the Red Sox played two players short against the Royals in Saturdays, 10-9, 12-inning loss at Fenway Park.
The Sox bullpen covered six innings in Saturdays game, leaving Valentine somewhat shortened there today. Right-hander Pedro Beato was called up from Pawtucket as reinforcement.
David Ortiz won't play Sunday, and the Red Sox could shut him down for the rest of the season to keep him healthy.
