The Red Sox have been shut out 11 times this year. John Lackey has been the Sox starter that day 6 times. Sunday it was a 3 - 0 loss to the Detroit Tigers in a game that sure felt like a September playoff push game.

Lackey and Doug Fister were locked in a scoreless game until the Tigers scored twice in the seventh inning added one more later.
