Lackey on track after simulated game

Red Sox starter John Lackey threw two simulated innings on Friday in Detroit, logging 40 total pitches and throwing his full complement of pitches. After the outing, the Red Sox said that Lackey was set to make a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, in which manager Terry Francona told reporters that the right-hander was expected to throw somewhere in the vicinity of 70 pitches and four innings.

Lackey said that he felt better than he did before going on the disabled list for a strained right elbow and receiving a cortisone shot last week.

"I don't think I’ll ever get to the point where I don’t feel anything, but it definitely feels a whole lot better," Lackey told reporters. "I feel like I was finishing [pitches] a whole lot better."

Lackey, who is 2-5 with an 8.01 ERA, suggested that he is eager to see how he feels after his rehab start, but barring a setback, everything should be in line for...

Reddick in lineup, Drew still out

The Red Sox, fresh off of back-to-back games in which they've scored 14 runs, could become the first team since the 1993 Tigers to achieve that feat in three straight contests on Friday. Coincidentally, the Sox are in Detroit, taking on the Tigers.

Regardless of what happens Friday, the Sox have already achieved a form of franchise history. The 14-2 victory against the Indians on Wednesday and the 14-1 victory in Detroit on Thursday marked the first back-to-back road wins by at least 12 runs in team history, according to Elias. Only one other team (the Mets in Aug. 2005 against the Diamondbacks) has accomplished that road feat.

Josh Reddick, who went 3-for-5 and drove in three runs on Thursday after a call-up from Triple-A Pawtucket, will remain in the lineup on Friday, with right fielder J.D. Drew missing his third straight game. Carl Crawford, who has collected four hits in back-to-back games, will remain in the sixth spot in the lineup....

Roenick: Kaberle's 'stick made out of Jell-O'

Longtime NHL star Jeremy Roenick joined The Big Show on Friday afternoon to discuss the Bruins-Lightning series and the excitement of Game 7. A veteran of six Game 7s, Roenick -- the third American-born player to join the 500-goals club -- suggested that "there are going to be a lot of nervous guys, a lot of guys praying to the porcelain god before the game. I’ve seen it happen."

Roenick said that he was sticking with his prediction, made before the Eastern Conference finals, that the Bruins would advance to the Stanley Cup finals in seven games. That said, he noted a couple of players whom he believes need to elevate their games in order for that outcome to reach fruition.

Roenick suggested that having Tomas Kaberle (who has no goals and 8 assists in the playoffs) anchoring the power play was a mistake, in part because he's not a threat to get the puck on net.

"He’s got a stick made of Jell-O. Kaberle doesn...

ESPN's Bryant has deal to drop charges

Howard Bryant, a former Boston Herald columnist who now writes for, reached an agreement with authorities in Western Massachusetts to have charges of domestic assault and resisting arrest dropped after he serves six months of pretrial probation. Bryant had been arrested Feb. 26 in Buckland.

Bucci, chief trial counsel in the Northwestern District Attorney's office for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, along with Bryant's lawyer, Buz Eisenberg.
