Lackey on start: 'A good step forward'

FORT MYERS, Fla. – John Lackey spoke to the media following his start vs. the Orioles on Monday. Lackey was in command in his second start of spring training, allowing just a single hit and no runs in his four innings of work against a split-squad Orioles group.

 

"I was happy with fastball location today," said Lackey, who gave up four hits and a run in two innings vs. the Braves in his first start of the spring March 2. "My rotation on my four-seam fastball was nice, nice and true. I still haven't started throwing my cutter yet, but I'll probably be ready to do that next start. So it was a good step forward."

 

Lackey needed only 39 pitches in his four innings. The Sox were expecting Lackey to throw somewhere in the 55-pitch range, so the right-hander threw an extra 16 pitches in the bullpen following the start.

Lackey strong in Sox win

FORT MYERS, Fla. – John Lackey needed just 39 pitches in his four innings of work for the Red Sox in his start vs. the Orioles at City of Palms Park on Monday, a game won by the Sox by a 6-5 final.

 

Lackey allowed a leadoff single in the first inning to Matt Angle before retiring the final 12 batters he faced. He did not walk or strike out a batter in his four innings.

 

Dan Wheeler struggled in relief of Lackey, allowing a pair of runs in an inning. 

 

The Sox offense got going quickly in the first inning, scoring three runs, two coming on a J.D. Drew single off of Chris Tillman. Carl Crawford -- who stole his first base and knocked in his first run of the spring in the win Monday -- and Kevin Youkilis scored on the Drew single. 

 

The Sox would lose that early three-run lead, but would later rally to tie the game in the eighth inning and later win it in the ninth on a...

Recchi to play Tuesday, Ference day-to-day
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said that Mark Recchi missed Monday's practice with personal reasons, but that the veteran forward will travel with the team to Montreal for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens. Defensemen Steven Kampfer and Andrew Ference will not travel with the B's. Kampfer, out with a concussion, is still dealing with headaches as he looks to get back on the ice. 

 

"It's the occasional headache that still bothers you, and that's about it," Kampfer said Monday. "It's frustrating. They'll go away for a couple of hours and then they'll come back. It's getting better as time goes on."

 

Ference has been dealing with a lower body injury and was expected to begin skating by Monday, but he remained absent from practice. 

 

"We had predicted [that he would begin skating] yesterday or maybe today, but [he's] not quite there yet, but it really is...
