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.
The Boston Red Sox have placed right-hander John Lackey on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right elbow.
Scott Atchison returned from Japan so his daughter could get better treatment for a rare medical condition. He found a major league job as a bonus.
Ty Wigginton hit a tie-breaking three-run homer in the seventh and Brad Bergesen pitched six strong innings to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 9-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
"Last year I knew I was going to have to pitch great to make the team and, to be honest, I don't know how much of that's changed," Atchison said. "But, I feel like the team knows what I can do now. I don't feel so much pressure, that every outing has to be perfect."
That was "the biggest concern her first year," said Atchison, soft-spoken and humble. "We needed to get her platelets checked once every two months at that point and the team (Hanshin) set us up so we could get it done."
