Johnson (pictured) was charged with four runs on seven hits and a walk in suffering his fourth loss of the season. Added to the recent struggles of Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi, it's easy to see why Red Sox fans are wondering how soon David Price and Chris Sale can get back on the mound.
Despite the loss, the Red Sox magic number to clinch the American League East dropped to 18, thanks to Detroit's 11-7 win over the Yankees in the Bronx. Boston travels to Atlanta where, due to his shorter-than-expected outing Friday night, Eovaldi will get the start.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
