Worth noting

• Right fielder Cody Ross entered Saturday's game on a season-high eight-game hitting streak. Ross, who hit the decisive two-run homer in Friday's night's 3-2 win against the Indians, was hitting .406 (13-for-32) with four doubles, two home runs and seven RBIs during that stretch.

• Daisuke Matsuzaka, on the 15-day disabled list with a right trapezius strain, made his third rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday night. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings, with three strikeouts and two walks. Matsuzaka threw 89 pitches. He hasn't pitched for the Red Sox since July 2.

• Clay Buchholz's complete-game performance against the Indians on Friday was his second of the season and the fifth of his career.
