Gonzalez comes through in clutch for Sox

The Red Sox completed their furious comeback from a six-run deficit Monday night at Fenway when Adrian Gonzalez lofted a one-out, two-run double off the left field wall in the ninth inning against Baltimore closer Kevin Gregg, scoring both Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia and giving the Sox an 8-7 win over the Orioles in the teams' series opener. It was the Sox' third walk-off win of the season, and Gonzalez' fifth career walk-off hit.

The win came despite the Red Sox going just 6-for-23 with runners in scoring position and leaving 15 runners on base.

The pivotal ninth started with a one-out walk to Ellsbury, who proceeded to steal second before Pedroia worked a walk. Then, on the first pitch of the at-bat, Gonzalez lofted the double halfway up the left field wall for the win.

The Sox fell into a 6-0 hole, with starter Daisuke Matsuzaka being charged with five runs over 4 1/3 innings. The righty would give up five hits and seven walks,...

Source: Lackey DL stint won't affect option

According to a source familiar with the situation, the Red Sox club option on John Lackey for 2015 won't be affected by the pitcher's trip to the 15-day disabled list. Lackey's current deal includes a clause which states that if the righty misses a significant time due to a pre-existing right elbow injury the team option drops to the Major League minimum salary for the '15 season.

The source indicated that Lackey would have to miss somewhere in the vicinity of the rest of the season for the option to be affected.

Lackey, who was placed on the disabled list prior to the Red Sox' series-opening game against the Orioles Monday night, had missed the beginning of the 2009 season due to elbow tightness. He was, however, seen playing catch with teammate Jon Lester prior to the Sox' meeting with the O's, and hadn't experienced any physical problems since arriving with the Red Sox in '10.

Lackey on disabled list with elbow strain

The Red Sox have placed starting pitcher John Lackey on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, retroactive to May 12. The team recalled reliever Scott Atchison. Lackey was scheduled to pitch Tuesday against the Orioles. No replacement has been named.

Lackey, who is 2-5 with an 8.01 ERA, is coming off two straight subpar outings, the latest a 6 2/3-inning outing in which he allowed nine runs on nine hits against the Blue Jays in Toronto. The start before the righty gave up eight runs on 10 hits over four innings against the Angels.

Atchison last pitched Sunday, allowing one hit over one inning for the Triple A Pawtucket Red Sox against Scranton-Wilkes Barre. In 10 appearances for the PawSox the reliever compiled a 1.25 ERA, striking out 23 and walking just one. Atchison appeared in one game for the Red Sox this season, throwing 3 2/3 innings May 5 against Los Angeles.

Court rules NFL lockout to remain in place

The owners won a major battle in the continuing lockout war on Monday, as the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided that the lockout should remain in place until a full appeal is heard. The judges ruled 2-1 that the stay should remain, saying the NFL has proven it will "likely will suffer some degree of irreparable harm without a stay." The next major milestone is likely to come June 3, when a hearing will be held to decide the legality of the lockout. The lockout, which is now approaching its 10th week, is the longest work stoppage in NFL history. For more football news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Scutaro improved, starts baseball activities

Marco Scutaro returned from a stint in Miami where he worked to rehab his strained left oblique muscle, getting a check-up Monday afternoon from Red Sox team physician Dr. Thomas Gill. According to the shortstop, he was much improved from when the Sox placed him on the 15-day disabled list May 8.

"I don’t feel anything just when I move, only when I sneeze," noted Scutaro. "But I didn’t do anything for all last week, so from today on, I’m going to start doing activities, and we’ll go from there."

Scutaro, who was instructed to not participate in any baseball activities for seven days, said he planned on taking swings prior to the Red Sox' series-opening game against the Orioles.

The shortstop said the injury was no longer sore to the touch, and was optimistic that he had avoided a long-term hiatus.

“Yeah, I do, I am," said Scutaro regarding if he was confident the injury wasn't...
