Making 1st start since 2011, Lackey hurt again
TORONTO 5, BOSTON 0

By IAN HARRISON
Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) -- John Lackey grabbed at his arm in pain, fearful
that another long rehab might lie ahead of him.



For now, the Boston Red Sox are hoping that won't be necessary.



Lackey left with a strained right biceps in his first start
since September 2011, coming out in the fifth inning Saturday as
the Red Sox lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0.



"It's all in the biceps, it wasn't the elbow," Lackey said.
"Pretty frustrating. A little scary when it happened, for sure."



Lackey (0-1) missed last season following elbow
ligament-replacement surgery in November 2011. He allowed a
two-run homer to J.P. Arencibia in the fourth, then clutched his
arm and jumped around the mound in pain after missing low and
inside to Jose Reyes on a 2-2 pitch with one out in the fifth.



"We called cutter away and I knew something had to be wrong,"
catcher David Ross said. "He just jerked it down and in. I
turned around to get a ball from the umpire and saw him grabbing
his arm."



Boston manager John Farrell and several teammates came to the
mound before Lackey walked off with trainer Rick Jameyson and
was replaced by Alfredo Aceves, who threw ball four.



Lackey was asked what went through his mind after his arm
tightened up.



"A year and a half of getting to this point and having to do it
again," he said.



Early results were more encouraging, though. Farrell said
Lackey's arm loosened up after icing, and tests didn't indicate
any lack of strength.



"My hand didn't go numb or anything like that, like I've had
with elbow stuff," said Lackey, who will fly to Boston on Sunday
morning to undergo an MRI.



Farrell said it was too early to say who might pitch if Lackey
is unable to make his next start.



"We've just got to get every test and run him through the
appropriate exam," Farrell said. "We'll put our heads together
once we get all that information."



Lackey signed an $82.5 million, five-year contract with Boston
in December 2009 after eight seasons with the Angels. He allowed
two runs and five hits in 4 1-3 innings with eight strikeouts
and one walk Saturday, throwing 50 of 76 pitches for strikes and
reaching 94 mph.



"He looked sharp," Farrell said. "He had good action to his
secondary stuff, the velocity was probably the best we've seen
to date. He was free and easy, he threw all of his pitches for
strikes."



Farrell called the biceps muscle "an abnormal area" for a
pitcher to feel cramping.



Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer in the sixth off Aceves, a
drive off the facing of the third deck in right-center.



J.A. Happ (1-0) combined on a two-hitter with Steve Delabar,
Aaron Loup and Sergio Santos.



After Jacoby Ellsbury's leadoff double in the first, the Red Sox
didn't get another hit until Dustin Pedroia reached on an
infield single with two outs in the ninth. Mike Napoli followed
with a drive to deep center, but Rasmus made a fine running
catch before crashing into the wall.



Pedro Ciriaco drew a one-out walk in the second, advanced on a
wild pitch and went to third on a throwing error by Arencibia,
then was thrown out at the plate by first baseman Edwin
Encarnacion while trying to score on Ellsbury's grounder.



Happ struck out six and walked three in 5 1-3 innings.



"Happ was dynamite," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He
started throwing his changeup more and that was a big pitch for
him."



Toronto was without slugger Jose Bautista for the second
straight day because of a sore right ankle. The two-time major
league home run leader was hurt stepping on first base while
beating out a double play Thursday. Bautista hit in the cage and
ran on the field before the game, and was available to pinch
hit.



Adam Lind walked to begin the sixth and stole second, just the
sixth stolen base of his career. Mark DeRosa drew a one-out walk
before Rasmus clobbered a three-run shot off the facing of the
third deck in right-center, his second.



NOTES: The Red Sox were shut out for the first time since Sept.
16, 2012, when they also lost 5-0 to Toronto. ... Attendance was
45,797. ... Toronto selected the contract of RHP Dave Bush from
Triple-A Buffalo and designated RHP Jeremy Jeffress for
assignment. Jeffress made his first appearance of the season in
Friday's loss to Boston, giving up a solo homer to his first
batter, Will Middlebrooks. ... Red Sox SS Jose Iglesias, who
left Friday's game two innings after being hit on the arm by a
pitch, was held out of the starting lineup. Farrell said it was
a scheduled day off. ... Bench coach Torey Lovullo, not Farrell,
brought the lineup card to home plate before the game. Farrell,
who managed the Blue Jays the past two seasons before leaving to
replace Bobby Valentine in Boston, was booed throughout the
series opener Friday night.
