The 37-year-old designated hitter, on a 20-game rehab stint with Pawtucket after suffering a right Achillesâ injury in a triumph over the Chicago White Sox last July 16, delivered a two-run ground single to right to help his club extend its lead to 4-1 â and continue Pawtucketâs finest-ever start to a season.
