John Lackey Attacks Zone Against Tigers’ Potent Offense to Give Red Sox Chance to Win (Video)


Thursday night’s tilt between the Red Sox and Tigers pitted two of the American League’s top offenses against one another, but it was the men on the mound who shined — until the ninth inning, at least.

Boston starter John Lackey turned in a stat line nearly identical to his last outing, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk over seven innings. He was unable to come away with the win — Jhonny Peralta made sure of that with a walk-off home run in the ninth — but Lackey continues to give the Sox quality innings. The right-hander has now allowed two runs or fewer in five of his last seven outings.
