Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless inning while striking out two batters in his return from the disabled list.
Papelbon was activated on Monday and got right back to work. It was good to see a clean inning, and two strikeouts, for Papelbon in his return. He hasn't been great this season, but as long as he's the team's closer he should see a fair amount of save opportunities.
