BOSTON — Red Sox Manager John Farrell said Boston will move forward with a formal protest over the lack of an interference call in a 4-1, 16-inning loss to the New York Yankees.

Matt Holliday walked leading off the 11th inning Saturday and Jacoby Ellsbury followed with a grounder to first baseman Mitch Moreland, who threw to second for a forceout. Holliday retreated toward first and slid into the bag as shortstop Xander Bogaerts’ throw arrived.

Moreland wasn’t able to reach the ball, which hit Ellsbury and bounced into foul territory. Farrell argued for an interference call, but umpires allowed Ellsbury to stay on first.

“We still firmly believe there was interference on the play and if it goes unaddressed or without any further attention brought to it, who’s to say you can’t instruct runners to do the same going forward?” Farrell said Sunday.

Holliday said he was unaware Moreland did not touch first before throwing to second.

NATIONALS-ATHLETICS TRADE: Washington acquired relievers Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle from Oakland for right-hander Blake Treinen and a pair of prospects.

Left-hander Jesus Luzardo and infielder Sheldon Neuse were sent to Oakland as part of Sunday’s deal.

A 36-year-old right-hander, Madson has a 2.06 ERA and is seventh among relievers in hits plus walks per inning at 0.79. He has not allowed any of the seven inherited runners to score in his last 13 appearances and has held opponents to a .188 batting average.

Dodgers: Adrian Gonzalez (lower back) is likely a couple weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment, Manager Dave Roberts said. Gonzalez took 60 swings on the side Sunday but has yet to take batting practice or run the bases.

Angels: Second baseman Danny Espinosa was designated for assignment after hitting .162 in 77 games this season. Nick Franklin got the start at second base against the Rays, going 1 for 3 with a walk, and is expected to platoon with Cliff Pennington going forward.

Blue Jays: Pitcher Francisco Liriano was still bothered by the neck stiffness and pain that forced him from Saturday’s game in the third inning. Liriano said he will give the problem a couple days before a decision about his next scheduled turn, Thursday in Boston.

Tigers: Pitcher Daniel Norris (groin) was expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday to start in Kansas City, but instead will remain on the disabled list.

Norris will pitch a rehab game for Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, with Matt Boyd coming up from Toledo to start against the Blue Jays.
