Notes:The Sox have lost five straight and six of their last seven games. ... Lackey has had a solid spring: 15.2 IP, 16 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K. ... The team has its only off day of the spring tomorrow. ... The Red Sox have sold out 25 of their 27 games this spring. The only exceptions were the split-squad games against Houston that were late additions to the schedule. ... The two starting pitchers are expected to throw 90+ pitches in their penultimate spring start. ... Yes, that's Manny Ramirez in left field. He will be playing at City of Palms for the first time since 2008.
