Joyce answered a pair of solo home runs in the top of the seventh with one of his own in the bottom half of the inning. He was then pulled for a pinch-runner after drawing a two-out walk in the bottom of the ninth inning with his team down one run, but the runner was caught stealing to end the game.

Joyce has hit .148/.195/.222 with one home run and seven RBI in 81 at-bats.

"I enjoy playing the game as much as possible," Craig said Monday night. "Like I said before, you never want to get an opportunity because of someone’s injury, but I don’t want to jump the gun on anything. I hope Hanley’s OK. If my name’s called, I’ll be ready."

Red Sox's Farrell: Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) day-to-day


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's 5-1 loss that left fielder Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is considered day-to-day, WEEI.com reports.

"He's day-to-day right now," Farrell said. "Obviously the sprain to the left shoulder on the collision. We're hopeful over the next couple days there's some improvement. There's no clear-cut DL at this point. So he's day-to-day."

Ramirez suffered a shoulder injury while slamming into an outfield wall while trying to make a play. He was removed from the game and later announced to have a sprained shoulder.

"Based on the exams and the images [Monday night], I don't have anything that suggests there's a reoccurrence of an old injury," Farrell said. "I think over the coming days, we'll have a read on how he can recover and we're hopeful he won't miss significant time."

Ramirez has hit .283/.340/.609 with 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 92 at-bats.

In Monday night's 5-2 win over the Braves, Francoeur went 4 for 5 with two RBI. One of those hits was a ninth-inning triple that scored Darin Ruf. Francoeur also had an RBI double in the first that scored Ben Revere. 

Francoeur, who was drafted by the Braves in 2002 and made his major-league debut with Atlanta in 2005, entered the game on an 0-for-19 skid, which included going hitless in 13 at-bats in his team's series against the Cardinals.

"In so many words, I'd like to say I was mentally [messed up] on Thursday," Francoeur said about the Cardinals series, per MLB.com. "I was scuffling. To get some time off this weekend was a big deal for me, man. Anybody that knows me knows that I grind hard, I play hard. I put a lot of pressure on myself. To get that time to really rest and relax, I felt really comfortable coming into today."

Francoeur is now hitting a slash line of .214/.267/.386.
