Lackey turns in three solid innings

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Making his second spring training start, John Lackey allowed three hits and no runs in three innings of work in the Red Sox' 8-2 win over the Mets Thursday afternoon at Tradition Field. Of Lackey's nine outs, eight of them came on ground balls. 

 

“I’m on time, yeah. I’m not getting too far ahead of myself or anything,” Lackey said. “My two-seamer was pretty good today. I was happy with that. I got a lot of ground balls. Some of the other pitches aren’t quite there, yet. We’ve still got some work to do, for sure. … I don’t think I threw a changeup in the game.

Bay’s reaction? “I thought it was a little harsh,” the former Red Sox outfielder said with a grin. When asked how he would classify the reception, Bay explained, “It was lukewarm, at best.”

 

Upon hearing the explanation, Mets third baseman David Wright yelled over, “For everything you brought to that city, they should cheer for you.” Bay seemed genuinely amused — while still somewhat surprised — coming away from the re-introduction to his former teammates with an understanding of the situation.

 

“They travel well,” Bay said of the Red Sox fans in attendance. “I didn’t expect...
