BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have sent pitcher Scott Atchison back to Triple-A Pawtucket after he worked three effective innings on Friday night against Oakland.
Atchison came in after starter Tim Wakefield struggled. He held the Athletics to one run over three innings in a 15-5 loss. Atchison, who was up with Boston for the fifth time, was recalled Friday. A doubleheader is scheduled for Saturday.
Bowden has appeared in six games this season, allowing one run in seven innings.
