Beckett returns in style, leads Sox to win

Making his first start since May 18, Josh Beckett held the Mariners to just one run over 5 2/3 innings, helping lead the Red Sox to a 2-1 win over Seattle, Friday night at Safeco Field. Beckett surrendered just the one first-inning runs while giving up five hits, striking out five and walking three in his 98-pitch performance. After tying the game on an RBI double from Adrian Beltre double in the fourth inning -- scoring Kevin Youkilis -- the Red Sox went ahead for good in the seventh when Bill Hall hit his 10th homer of the season, off of Seattle starter Jason Vargas. 

 

The Red Sox' bullpen performed admirably after Beckett's departure, with Scott Atchison following the Red Sox' starter with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, and Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon each pitching an inning without giving up a run. Papelbon stranded runners on first and second in the ninth when he struck out Josh Wilson to end the game.

Bowden optioned to clear spot for Beckett

With the Red Sox in need of a roster spot for returning starter Josh Beckett, the team elected to option pitcher Michael Bowden back to Triple-A Pawtucket. Bowden had made three relief appearances in his new bullpen role since being called up, allowing three hits and walking two while not being charged with a run in three appearances.

 

"I'm disappointed, but I have a feeling I'll be back sooner rather than later," Bowden told reporters in Seattle.

Lineups: Lowrie at second, hitting second
By: DJ Bean

Two days after making his season debut at shortstop, infielder Jed Lowrie will start at second base in addition to hitting second in the batting order. With Lowrie at second, Bill Hall will be in left field, leaving Darnell McDonald on the bench. Josh Beckett makes his return from a back injury that has kept him out since May 18 while the Red Sox offense looks to step it up against Jason Vargas, whose 6-4 record says much less than his 2.97 ERA.

Krejci mum as Wheeler nears arbitration
By: DJ Bean

Agent Matt Keator, who represents Bruins winger Blake Wheeler as well as defensemen Mark Stuart and Zdeno Chara, told WEEI.com Friday that the only update with Wheeler is that the "tickets for Toronto [the site of his Tuesday arbitration hearing] are booked." The two sides have not made progress in trying to avoid arbitration. Wheeler is currently on his honeymoon, and one of those in attendance at his wedding would shed little light on the situation. 

Center David Krejci took some time to speak with reporters after signing autographs for youngsters at the first Bruins summer camp on Friday. A friend of Wheeler's, Krejci was a bit hesitant to divulge anything when asked if he had kept in contact with the winger.

Gammons: DeJesus-to-Sox 'out the window'

Peter Gammons told The Big Show on Friday afternoon that a rumored David DeJesus-to-the-Red Sox deal is "out the window." According to Gammons, the Kansas City outfielder, who injured his thumb crashing into the wall on a play against the Yankees in New York on Thursday night, will be out 4-6 weeks with the injury and will have surgery on Monday. It was believed that DeJesus had been one of the biggest outfield targets on the trade market, garnering interest from several contending teams, including the Red Sox. DeJesus was hitting .318 when he was injured.
