Jerry ‘Rello’ Recco kicked off his first update with Tuesday night’s broadcast of John Sterling describing the action in the top of the 7th, when John Lackey drilled Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli.

Then Jerry reported on Alex Rodriguez’s status for the rest of the Boston series. A-Rod received a cortisone shot in his ailing left thumb and according to ole Jerry, he will be out for a long while, like the whole season.
