Wright moves propel Red Sox past M's for third straight win
Red Sox reliever Steven Wright, a 28-year-old knuckleballer who was called up from Triple-A on Wednesday, pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up his first career win.
Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez lasted 4 2/3 innings in his 2013 debut, giving up six hits and seven runs while walking four, and Boston’s Ryan Dempster didn’t make it out of the fourth. He was charged with seven runs — four earned — while giving up nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.
Seattle’s Kyle Seager tied the score with a leadoff homer in the second.
But Boston got three runs back with consecutive two-out singles in the top of the fourth to pull within 5-4.
Boston’s David Ortiz, who had eight hits in his 10 at-bats this series heading into Thursday, had a chance to be the hero in the top of the ninth and came within a few feet of doing it. But his long fly ball to deep center field was caught on the warning track by Seattle’s Dustin Ackley, resulting in the second out of the inning.
Boston reliever Koji Uehara pitched a perfect bottom of the 10th to pick up his seventh save.
