Lackey: Boos 'won't be forgotten, for sure'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox starter John Lackey, after his first outing in Angel Stadium as a visiting player, made no secret of his displeasure in the face of the wave of boos that greeted him at his former home ballpark. Lackey (10-5), who earned the victory on the strength of 7 2/3 innings in which he allowed two runs on seven hits while matching a season-high with 124 pitches, admitted that there were hurt feelings based on his reception by the fans of a franchise for whom he went 102-71 with a 3.81 ERA over eight seasons.

 

"Definitely heard a lot of [the boos]. ... That won't be forgotten, for sure," said Lackey. "Nobody wants to get booed like that. Scoreboard talks the loudest."

 

Lackey earned the praise of his teammates for his outstanding performance in a setting that was potentially emotionally charged.

 

"That’s what happens man. Good players always go to the top...

Drew to receive MRI on hamstring

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Red Sox hope to have J.D. Drew's tight left hamstring examined on Wednesday, with Drew saying that the hope is that an MRI can be performed in order to get a precise diagnosis. Drew said that the hamstring has been bothering him for the past three or four weeks, and that it refused to loosen while he ran pre-game sprints just prior to the start of Tuesday's game.

 

Drew was scratched just minutes before the start of Tuesday's game. The Sox plan on sitting him in Wednesday's day game, in hopes that he might be able to return to the lineup on Friday, following an off-day on Thursday.

 

“I’ve been dealing with it for a while now and it just got too much before the game. I tried to run some sprints and I really just couldn’t get loose. I had to tell Tito and them right before the game that there really wasn’t any way to perform like I needed to out there so I had to make that call...

He's no Angel: Lackey beats ex-team

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Red Sox starter John Lackey continued his excellence in the second half, allowing just two runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Angels, leading his new club to a 4-2 win over his former club.

Lackey – who was roundly booed by the crowd – was a picture of focus in his first start as a visiting player in Angel Stadium. He permitted just one walk and struck out four in improving his ERA to 1.59 since the All-Star break, while matching a season high with 124 pitches. Lackey (10-5) also reached 10 wins for the eighth straight year, making him one of three pitchers (along with Derek Lowe and CC Sabathia) to achieve double digits in victories in every year since 2003.

It appeared for much of the game as if Lackey might be a hard-luck loser against closer friend Jered Weaver, who managed a 1-0 lead through six frames. But the Sox rallied with two outs in the top of the seventh inning.

Beltre: 'Only he knows if he threw at me'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre still sported a sizable bruise and swelling on his right arm, just above his elbow, on Tuesday afternoon. The condition was the result of having been drilled by a Fernando Rodney fastball in the eighth inning of Monday's game, two pitches after David Ortiz had deposited one of the Angels reliever's fastballs in the right field bleachers.

 

After being hit, both benches were warned, and Beltre glared at Rodney and stood in the batters box before heading to first. On Tuesday, Beltre shrugged off the plunking.

 

"Only [Rodney] knows if he threw at me. I asked him and he said no, but who knows?" Beltre said. "It’s part of baseball anyways. If he threw at me, it’s a good spot for him to hit."

Lowell hits three homers for Pawtucket

Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell hit three homers and drove in five in a rehab game for Triple-A Pawtucket against the Toledo Mud Hens on Tuesday. It was his fourth rehab game. He is now hitting .471 with three doubles and three homers during his rehab stint.

 

Lowell became the first PawSox hitter with three homers in a game since both Jonathan Van Every and Brandon Moss accomplished the feat in 2008. Lowell also has a three-homer game to his credit in the majors, having accomplished the feat in 2004 with the Marlins.

 

Lowell, who played third base on Tuesday, could be activated by the Red Sox as soon as this weekend, when the team returns home.
