Steven Wright might want to consider coming in during the second inning. For the second straight game, the knuckleballer gave up two runs in the first—leading to an eventual loss. While the Red Sox mounted a late comeback, they fell for only the second time (5-3) in six match-ups with the Blue Jays. Wright went six decent innings, giving up just two earned runs. In his first major league game, Sox rookie Marco Hernandez broke up a no-hitter—eventually scoring the first Boston run. In the ninth, Travis Shaw (continuing his dominance of Toronto pitching) clouted a two-run HR to make things close—but to no avail.
