LA native and knuckle baller Steven Wright threw his first career shutout as the Red Sox beat the Dodgers, 9-0.


Wright (13-5) allowed three hits, walked one and struck out nine for his fourth complete game of the season.



As the pitching was keeping the Dodgers off balance, catcher Sandy Leon, was on the offense with a 2 for 3 night which included a home run and four RBIs. Right fielder Mookie Betts was 3 for 5 with a homer and two RBIs. 


The Sox won for the fourth time in their last six games. They are 5-4 on this current road trip that had two games left with the Dodgers facing two left-handers as Boston's Ace starts on the mound on Sunday David Price.

Steve had the right stuff tonight looking like an Ace in his own right by retiring 15 in a row with an effective knuckleball and just to keep the Dodgers thinking a mix of fastballs was very successful.


Wright threw 13 fastballs. Six were taken for strikes. Three were put in play and converted into outs. Two were fouled off and two were taken for balls.


The Sox took a 1-0 lead in the second inning. when Sandy León sent a sacrifice fly to left field as Jackie Bradley Jr. was on third base.


In the inning Mookie lifted his 23rd home run of the year  to left field.


Dodgers pitcher Kazmir was shaky for his five plus innings as he walked Hill. Then Sandy followed with a home run to left field as well for his fourth.



In-fielder Travis Shaw homered to right field off Jesse Chavez in the eighth inning which put all hopes of any type of rally out of the minds of Dodgers fan as they began to pack up and leave the park.

On what to seem to be an odd move The Dodgers
intentionally walked Hill to load the bases for Leon. That was followed by hit over center fielder Joc Pederson head, but with his hustle just made it into a long single and runners waited to see if the ball would be caught. Later on in the inning Chase Utley booted a shot at him and two runs came in.
