BOSTON (AP) — Brandon Snyder hit a bases-loaded double and John Lackey struck out six over eight strong innings for the Boston Red Sox in a 4-1 win over the slumping San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.
Lackey (6-5) scattered six hits and walked just one while moving above .500 for the first time since late in 2011. Lackey has won four straight decisions and appears well-healed from the right biceps strain that put him on the disabled list after his first start.
The only run Lackey allowed was a solo homer by Jesus Guzman in the seventh.
