Dice-K yields just one run in latest rehab outing
BOSTON -- Daisuke Matsuzaka threw 5 1/3 innings of two-hit ball for Triple-A Pawtucket against Norfolk on Thursday night.

Matsuzaka struck out four, walked none and left the game after throwing 76 pitches (51 strikes). He surrendered a home run to the second batter he faced, Lew Ford, but that was his only blemish.

Thursday was his second start since he received a cortisone shot in his right trapezius muscle, near the shoulder and neck, on May 20. Matsuzaka is in his second 30-day rehab stint this year, his first ending on May 22.

Dice-K is recovering from Tommy John surgery and has started five games for Pawtucket. He was able to get another 30-day stint in the Minors because a different injury situation arose, which led to the cortisone shot.
