Steven Wright’s knuckleball is an absolute joke — and we mean that in the best way possible.
The 33-year-old righty also tallied three walks and five strikeouts, one of which came against Orioles slugger Chris Davis, who stood no chance against Wright’s spinless, dancing marvel.
Check this out:
Wright once again has Twitter fawning over his often-unhittable knuckler. It might not be long before fans start gawking at his stats, however — if they haven’t already.
With Monday’s performance, Wright now has thrown 22 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 1.21 in the process. Overall, he’s made six straight scoreless appearances, four of which have come out of the bullpen.
He still has a long way to go before he sets the Red Sox record in that category, though.
