Recap - Lackey dominates in Sox 4-1 win over Padres
Jim Monaghan Contributing writer
Brandon Snyder's bases-clearing double off the top of the Wall in the bottom of the fourth, and eight ridiculously strong innings by John Lackey led the Red Sox to a 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres at Fenway Park.
For Lackey (pictured), it was his longest outing of the year; the last time he saw the eighth inning of a game from the mound was June 17, 2011. He held the Padres to one run on six hits and one walk (his first walk in his last seventeen innings). His earned run average is now down to 2.81.
Koji Uehara pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to pick up his fifth save of the season.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
