Mike Carp, who was the hero in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Orioles by driving in the go-ahead run off the bench in the eighth inning, was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to left shoulder stiffness and is considered day to day.

• After exiting Wednesday's game after fouling a ball off his right foot, Jacoby Ellsbury played all of Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Orioles. Ellsbury stole his 50th base in the eighth inning, even with O's catcher Matt Wieters standing upright on a pitch-out. Ellsbury has three 50-steal seasons, matching him with Michael Bourn as the only players since 2008 to steal at least 50 three times.
