Dodgers lefty starting hopeful Alex Wood gave up 2 runs on 3 hits in 2 innings Saturday, but manager Dave Roberts said he saw some positives. "I thought Alex was fine," Roberts said. "The fastball was fine, had life. He gave up some hits but there were some good breaking balls and changes. He was fine today."

About that Pablo Sandoval bunt -- yes, bunt: "That was on his own," said John Farrell, who reiterated Red Sox have talked about bunting to beat shift. "And next at-bat, you see them back in 2-and-2 (alignment) on either side (of second base)." Sandoval also got a hit right-handed.

John Farrell often suggests that Dustin Pedroia wasn't keen on batting leadoff early in career. "I never didn't like it," said Pedroia, who hit well in Red Sox's leadoff spot last season and will stay atop order. "I don't know where that came from."
