Red Sox update

The reigning World Series champs have looked vulnerable on the road with an 11-19 record. They've lost nine of their past 10 road games, a stretch that includes two losses at Camden Yards. Manny Ramirez is one home run shy of 500 for his career, a plateau reached by only 23 others. He has 31 home runs vs. the Orioles. David Ortiz has 10 multi-hit games this month and has raised his average 53 points since May 1. Jacoby Ellsbury is second in the league with 20 steals. Kevin Youkilis didn't start the three games in Seattle due to a sore hand, but he's expected back tonight. Daisuke Matsuzaka, 8-0 in his second season with the Red Sox, returned to Boston to get a magnetic resonance imaging on his shoulder, and Monday's start is in doubt.
