Ranaudo called up to start for Red Sox today

The Boston Red Sox recalled right-hander Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Pawtucket yesterday.

This is Ranaudo’s second stint of the month with Boston. He got the win in a start against the Yankees on August 1, allowing four hits and two runs with four walks and two strikeouts in his major-league debut.
