BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - John Lackey labored through a 35-pitch second inning in his second outing of spring training, and the Boston Red Sox received 14 walks - including four with the bases loaded - in a 16-6 rout of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday.

Lackey, who missed last season following elbow ligament-replacement surgery, retired the Pirates on eight pitches in the first inning. Pittsburgh took a 3-1 lead in the second when Brandon Inge and Clint Robinson singled, and Jared Goedert homered into the Red Sox bullpen beyond the left-field wall.

Lyle Overbay drew a bases-loaded walk in a four-run third off left-hander Jonathan Sanchez, who gave up four runs, three hits and four walks in two-thirds of an inning. Two runs scored on shortstop Josh Harrison's throwing error.

Pittsburgh's Zach Foster and Roman Colon combine to walk five in the fourth, including David Ross, Overbay and J.C. Linares with the bases full. Jose Iglesias capped the five-run inning with a two-run single.
