After averaging seven runs per game through their first four, the Red Sox offense sputtered to a near-complete stop on Sunday—falling to the Blue Jays, 3-0. A perfect relay cut down Dustin Pedroia at the plate during Boston's only chance at scoring. Steven Wright was shaky in the first inning—and the victim of shoddy defense—leading to two early Toronto runs (only one earned). The knuckle-baller settled down after that, going 6 2/3 innings. A late HR off Noe Ramirez extended the lead to 3-0. Hanley Ramirez stayed red-hot, going 3-4—and is now hitting .455. The 3-2 Carmine Hose head home to Fenway for the Home Opener on Monday at 2PM ET.
