The Red Sox received another stellar performance by rookie pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez but the offense failed to supply the necessary run support as the Baltimore Orioles handed Boston its fifth shutout of the season by a score of 1-0.

Rodriquez (pictured) shutout the O's on three hits over six innings, striking out six and walking three. He became the first pitcher in MLB history to go at least six innings in his first three starts allowing one or fewer runs.

The lone run of the game scored on a wild pitch charged to reliever Matt Barnes who was charged with the loss.

Hanley Ramirez left the game in the third inning after fouling a ball off his left knee in the top of the second inning. He said after the game he expects to play on Wednesday.

Each team managed just five hits.
