Just like that, The Raiders Of The Lost Offense returned to Fenway Park. With five meager hits, the Red Sox limped onto the road with a frustrating 5-0 loss to the Mariners. Rick Porcello was more than matched by some guy named Christian Bergman—who blanked The Carmine Hose through seven innings. In his previous start, he yielded 10 runs on 14 hits. The 2016 Cy Young winner coughed up 11 hits and 2 earned runs through 6.1 innings. Boston hit into almost as many double plays as they got hits. A real stinker of a loss. On to Chicago.
