Cameron Plays Center in Second Rehab Start

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) – Mike Cameron, recovering from an a lower

abdominal strain, was 1 for 3 in his second rehabilitation game for

the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox against Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Cameron batted leadoff and played center field, easily handling

two routine fly balls. Perhaps the best indication Cameron has

recovered came in the second inning when, after walking on four

pitches, he ran from first base to third on Josh Reddicks single.

He lined a 1-2 pitch from right-hander Jason Parr to center in

the first. After advancing to second on a passed ball, Cameron

tagged up and moved to third on a fly to center.

Cameron, who was limited to four plate appearances, struck out

swinging in the fourth and popped out to second in the seventh.
