Red Sox 0, Rangers 4, End 7: Rangers Draw Closer To Shutout After Another Scoreless Frame

The Red Sox are six outs away from being shut out after a series in Kansas City gave the impression that the offense may, finally, have been back.

For what it’s worth, the Sox are facing C.J. Wilson—no easy task—but the four hits they’ve achieved aren’t impressive in any context. Amazingly, the seventh proved one of their best frames, with Jed Lowrie and Ryan Lavarnway both reaching with one out. But Wilson snagged a come-backer from Carl Crawford and Jarrod Saltalamacchia grounded out after Koji Uehara entered the game to end the threat with no runs scoring.

The Sox would dodge their own trouble in the bottom of the inning as Matt Albers continued to struggle, allowing a leadoff double and a pair of two-out walks to load the bases. He got Michael Young to fly out however, holding Texas’ lead to a still pretty insurmountable 4-0.
