Knuckleballer Steven Wright gave up four early runs and the Red Sox offense never got going Saturday afternoon. It all spelled a 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

The Sox have lost 10 of their last 12 games.

Wright lasted just 4.1 innings. At times, his kncukleball moved so much that catcher Blake Swihart was charged with four passed balls.

The rubber game of the three game series is tonight at 8pm. Live coverage begins at 7pm on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
