    Game Notes

    HE THREE-RUN HOME RUN BY BOSTON'S MANNY RAMIREZ IN THE BOTTOM OF THE THIRD INNING WAS THE 1, 000TH RBI OF HIS MAJOR LEAGUE CAREER.
    BOSTON CENTER FIELDER JOHNNY DAMON LEFT THE GAME IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST INNING WITH A DISLOCATED RIGHT RING FINGER. HIS STATUS IS DAY-TO-DAY.
    THE HOME RUNS BY BOSTON'S MANNY RAMIREZ AND CLIFF FLOYD WERE HIT BACK TO BACK.
    TEXAS MANAGER JERRY NARRON IS NOT WITH THE TEAM DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS. BENCH COACH TERRY FRANCONA WILL SERVE AS MANAGER.
    BOSTON PITCHER PEDRO MARTINEZ WAS SCRATCHED FROM TONIGHT'S START DUE TO THE THREAT OF RAIN. HE IS NOW SCHEDULED TO PITCH ON FRIDAY. DUSTIN HERMANSON (0-0, 18.00) WILL START IN HIS PLACE.
