FORT MYERS, Fla. – Red Sox righthander John Lackey doesn’t want to get too far ahead of himself, he said, “because I’ve got one more start to go. But it’s gone pretty good. Pretty happy about where my stuff is.”
Lackey, recovering from Tommy John surgery, went 5⅓ innings Tuesday against Tampa Bay’s Triple A team. He allowed three runs on seven hits, with seven strikeouts and four walks. He threw 101 pitches, 54 strikes.
