Matsuzaka to start Tuesday

Daisuke Matsuzaka will return to the Red Sox on Tuesday, manager Terry Francona said. Paul Byrd, who had previously occupied that slot, is in a holding pattern.

For the weekend, Josh Beckett will still pitch Saturday. On Sunday, Clay Buchholz will start the noon game of the doubleheader, and Jon Lester, who threw 23 pitches tonight, will start the 5 p.m. game Sunday.
