Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox made a small attitude adjustment and put up big numbers.
• The 17 runs Boston scored accounted for 13 percent of their season total (131) and was its most since August 2, 2009.
• Clay Buchholz got the win despite allowing a season-high four earned runs.
• Joe Saunders, who entered Monday 3-0 in three career starts at Fenway Park, allowed seven runs and nine hits in four innings and fell to 1-5 on the season. Saunders is the first pitcher in the AL to lose five games this season.
• The Red Sox's 11 extra-base hits was the most they've had since August 22, 2009 against the New York Yankees.
• The Red Sox had 20 hits, making them the third team in 2010 (Milwaukee and Minnesota) to reach the 20-hit mark.
Buchholz was hit on his left foot by Kendry Morales' liner in the second. Francona and the club's trainer came out quickly, but the right-hander took a few warmup pitches and remained in the game. ... Plate umpire John Hirschbeck issued warnings to both dugouts after Saunders hit Youkilis with a pitch in the third. ... Kendrick entered hitting .442 (19 for 43) in his career in Fenway, and went 1 for 3.
