RED SOX UPDATE

Boston has the best record in baseball, even after getting swept over the weekend at Texas. The Red Sox have won their past five games at Fenway Park, where they are 11-5. … Boston has been in first place for all 36 days of the season, the longest streak to open season in team history. … The Red Sox are second in the American League in slugging percentage, on-base percentage and stolen bases. … Buchholz joined Babe Ruth, Pedro Martinez and Josh Beckett as only Red Sox pitchers to ever go 5-0 in April. … Former Twins LHP Craig Breslow is on a rehab assignment with Class AAA Pawtucket. … RHP Koji Uehara’s 2.30 ERA since 2010 is second-lowest in AL in that time, behind only the Yankees’ Mariano Rivera (1.85).

TWINS UPDATE

This is the final stop of a three-city, 10-game road trip. They are 2-4 on the trip and 6-8 on the road. … They were 3-4 vs. the Red Sox in 2012 but 3-1 in Boston. In the four prior seasons, they were 1-10 at Fenway Park. ... They entered Sunday ranked ninth among AL teams in staff ERA (4.09), but first in bullpen ERA (2.55). ... Their four scheduled starters have a combined total of one inning of experience at Fenway; Correia faced four batters in relief in 2007. Worley is the only Twins starter to have previously started against Boston, giving up one run in seven innings for Philadelphia in 2011. ... 1B Justin Morneau has a career .375 average at Fenway, with four home runs and a .604 slugging percentage.
