Gomez could prove to be plenty valuable down the stretch depending on his playing time.
Gomez was 0 for 9 in his previous five games.
Gomez, who is batting .327 over his first 15 major league games, is 7 for 14 over his last four games. He had a career-best four hits in a loss to Kansas City on Saturday.
Gomez went 4 for 6 with a solo jack and three RBIs. With Boston going nowhere, he should get plenty of ABs down the stretch.
Gomez is 8 for 17 in five games since being promoted from Pawtucket on Tuesday. "I believe in him as a hitter," manager Bobby Valentine said. "He can use the whole field and hit a lot of different pitches."
