BOSTON - Quotes, notes and stars from the Boston Red Sox' 8-6 loss to the Chicago White Sox:
"From the dugout view, it looked like contact made above the red line. And the review they showed on the scoreboard kind of supported that. But apparently, the review was it was to be a double.'' - John Farrell on the disputed double by Xander Bogaerts in the eighth inning.
"At times, it's the action to the split. It hasn't had that late tumble. It's been the late action to the split, on a consistent basis, that's been different than years past. '' - Farrell on Koji Uehara's struggles.
"I was back to my old mechanics and worked through ll my pitches. I just missed my spot one time (that resulted) in a homer. The velocity's better to both sides of the plate. It's getting better day-by-day.'' - Eduardo Rodriguez.
"If you look throughout my career, there were times that I struggle. I don't think it's anything unusual. I'm going to work out of this.'' - Koji Uehara.

1) Melky Cabrera
Cabrera knocked in half of the White Sox eight runs with a first-inning double, an eighth inning solo homer and a run-scoring single in the ninth.
2) Todd Frazier
For the second straight night, Frazier made his one hit count -- a home run, this one a two-run shot off Eduardo Rodriguez to tie the game at 4-4 in the sixth.
3) Xander Bogaerts
Bogaerts had three hits and three RBI, but undoubtedly wishes that his second double of the night -- in the eighth inning - wasn't touched by a fan, since it may have been heading over the wall in left.
