The Boston Red Sox still aren't putting many runs on the board, but they had enough in their last game.
They would have needed a few more to come out on top in Felix Doubront's last outing.
Doubront will try to rebound from his worst start of the season Wednesday night when the Red Sox go for their fourth consecutive series win visiting the Miami Marlins.
Among the major league leaders with 4.98 runs per game, Boston (30-32) has scored three or fewer in a season high-tying four straight contests after ending a four-game skid with Tuesday's 2-1 victory.
Last in the AL East, the Red Sox are batting .217 and averaging 3.0 runs while dropping seven of nine.
Boston, though, hasn't had problems scoring when Doubront (6-3, 4.34 ERA) is on the hill. The left-hander has one of the majors' highest run-support averages at 7.06.
Doubront could have used more help from his teammates in a 7-4 loss to Washington on Friday when he yielded a career-high six runs in four innings.
