Boston’s Sizemore back on the field

Grady Sizemore returned to action for the first time in more than two years, playing three innings in left field and going hitless in two at-bats Thursday for the Boston Red Sox in a 5-2 victory over Northeastern.
Later in the day, the Red Sox beat Boston College 5-2.
Sizemore joined the Red Sox in January after being sidelined by multiple injuries with Cleveland. Once one of baseball’s most dynamic players, the three-time All-Star hadn’t played since Sept. 22, 2011.
Since 2009, Sizemore has undergone seven operations, the last coming in 2012 for a herniated disk in his lower back.
Northeastern sophomore James Mulry, from West Roxbury, Mass., and a graduate of Boston Latin School, struck out stars Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. After a single and walk, Xander Bogaerts grounded out.
Christian Vazquez hit a solo home run in the win over BC. Travis Shaw added a three-run double.
