Boston Red Sox

BOSTON (CBS) – Andrew Bailey took another big step towards joining the Red Sox for the first time this season.

The reliever pitched in back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday for the Pawtucket Red Sox, tossing two scoreless innings and striking out three.

Bailey threw a 1-2-3 sixth inning Wednesday night against the Syracuse Chiefs, getting a ground out and a pop out before striking out Brett Carroll swinging.

On Thursday, Bailey again worked the sixth inning, striking out two while allowing a single.

In his rehab stint, Bailey has now allowed just one run while striking out nine batters in five innings of work over three levels of the Red Sox farm system.

Bailey began the season on the DL after undergoing surgery on his right thumb. He is one of 24 players to land on the disabled list this season for 28 separate stints, both of which are the most by a Red Sox team since at least 1971, according to the team.
