FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) – Adrian Gonzalez had a single and a sacrifice fly in his first game with the Boston Red Sox, who beat the Florida Marlins 9-2 on Saturday.

Gonzalez, who was acquired in a trade with San Diego in December, had been held back to rehab his surgically repaired right shoulder. The big first baseman quickly made up for lost time, picking up a hit in the first and driving in a run with a fly ball in the second.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Jonny Miller spoke with Gonzalez after the game.

Marlins ace Josh Johnson had a rough day, allowing five runs and nine hits in 3 2-3 innings. He struck out two and walked one.

John Lackey pitched 4 1-3 innings for the Red Sox, yielding one run and six hits. He struck out three and walked none.
