Lackey solid in return as Red Sox beat Astros 6-1

BOSTON (AP) - John Lackey returned from the disabled list and pitched six solid innings, David Ortiz drove in two more runs and the Boston Red Sox matched a team record with its 18th win in April by beating the Houston Astros 6-1 Sunday for a 4-game sweep.

Lackey (1-1) missed all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery and went on the DL after leaving his first start this year with a strained right biceps. He allowed five hits, struck out four and walked two. The two walks came with two outs in the first and cost Lackey his only run.

Stephen Drew hit a two-run triple and Ortiz had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 20 games dating back to last Season. Ortiz has 11 RBIs and is batting .516 in eight games since returning to the lineup last weekend.
