Boston Red Sox Notes: Team Has Big Hole At Third Base

Brock Holt, the team's preferred option at third, has suffered from an unusual case of vertigo since the start of the year and is still on assignment in Double-A Portland while he recovers his hitting form. "You guys can ask (management) though". "The true Bostonians support their people, regardless of who they are, and they are great people and I'm proud of my Bostonians". Price is scheduled to throw a light bullpen session on Thursday, and manager John Farrell said Price's next full work session could be a minor league rehab start.

The Red Sox got 4 1/3 innings from Kyle Kendrick (1-1), who was charged with six runs, 10 hits and a walk (with two strikeouts) in his second start of the season. After inking a record-setting seven-year, $217MM contract in free agency, Price compiled a 3.99 ERA over 230 innings - his worst single-season earned run average since way back in 2009.

The Brewers overcame a big night by Boston's Mookie Betts, who went 4 for 4, drove in four runs and finished a triple short of the cycle.

Nigeria leader meets Chibok girls, leaves for medical trip
President Muhammadu Buhari has described the rescue of 82 Chibok schoolgirls as a pleasant 2nd anniversary gift to Nigerians. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhar has expressed joy at meeting the 82 girls, as he shared photos of them on social media.

But Brewers reliever Rob Scahill (1-1) shut down the Red Sox, allowing just two walks over 2 1/3 scoreless innings to pick up the win.

Both squads lost key players to injuries. Brewers' manager Craig Counsell went with Jared Hughes to replace Drake, and Hughes made Couns look like a genius, getting a double play grounder from Vazguez and a flyball to center to end the inning with just one run for the Bosox. Boston first baseman Hanley Ramirez left before the bottom of the fourth with what the team called a muscle spasm in his right upper back. After going four innings in another simulation on May 9, the club has confirmed that the All-Star lefty will make a rehab start on Sunday, May 14 - first reported by the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham. The Red Sox were making their first appearance in Milwaukee since the 2003 season. Guerra has been sideline since getting hurt on opening day. RBI singles from Domingo Santana and Hernan Perez plated Braun and Shaw for a 2-0 advantage.

In response to Jones' comments, Red Sox President Sam Kennedy offered an apology: "The Red Sox want to publicly apologize to Adam Jones and the entire Orioles organization for what occurred at Fenway Park Monday night". He left after three innings in his last start on Friday against Pittsburgh because of a 2 1/2-hour rain delay.
