The lone hits were singles by Mookie Betts and Eduardo Nunez. At one point, Seattle starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc retired 22 Boston hitters in a row.

Steven Wright (pictured) was terrific. He went seven innings and allowed just one run on five hits and a pair of walks. He struck out four as his record dropped to 2-1. He is sporting a 1.23 ERA.

For his part, LeBlanc went 7.2 innings, his longest outing of the year. He struck out nine and didn't walk a batter.

Eduardo Rodriguez goes for the Sox Sunday afternoon, hoping to end the two-game losing streak.
