Mark Reynolds sat out Sunday's game, the day after he was beaned by the Angels' Ervin Santana two innings after smoking his 34th home run and had to leave the game for tests. Red Sox: Bedard good to go on Tuesday
Left-hander Erik Bedard, off his satisfactory bullpen session on Saturday, will go in Tuesday night's game. It will be his first start since Sept. 3, having been out with a strained side muscle. Infielder Jed Lowrie (sore left shoulder) remains out of the lineup, but is available to come off the bench to pinch-hit. Worth noting
Tim Wakefield's five-inning turn on Sunday increased his career workload for the Red Sox to 3,002 innings, the first Boston pitcher to pass the 3,000-inning threshold. It left the Reds as the only one of the Major League's 16 charter teams without a 3,000-inning pitcher. The Reds' career leader is Eppa Rixey (1912-33), with 2,890 2/3 innings.
