Some good news for the Red Sox today, as Mike Lowell saw his first game action since his hip operation of last October. He was the designated hitter in today's spring training game against the Orioles. Lowell struck out, fouled out, and singled in three at-bats before leaving for a pinch-runner.
The Orioles won, 5-1, but that doesn't matter. Lowell is on his way back.
