Boston Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez exited Sunday afternoon's matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays with a leg injury. The Sox faced a bases-loaded situation in the 7th after Wright's departure and a freakish wind-aided single, but Robbie Ross Jr. struck out two and Ben Taylor got Logan Morrison to fly out to Betts, limiting the damage to one run and, at 4-3, keeping the lead intact.

"I think he's carried what he did previous year into this season despite missing the four games in Detroit", Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Ramirez reached on a walk and ran hard to second, taking the turn before he came up limping.

Boston Red Sox's Christian Vazquez (7) celebrates with teammate Pablo Sandoval, right, after Sandoval hit a home run in the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Sunday, April 16, 2017, in Boston.

A poor first inning from Drew Pomeranz had the Sox trailing 3-0 before they got to bat in the first, but once again the offense responded by scoring two runs to cut into the deficit.

The Red Sox wore white home jerseys with "Boston" across the front instead of "Red Sox".

Again, there are still 150 games to be played during the regular season for the Boston Red Sox.

But the Red Sox (6-5) have scored just three runs for him in the starts.

Cobb failed to strike out any batters for the first time in 89 career major league starts.

Pittsburgh starter Chad Kuhl gave up one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out six without a walk.

Over on the Red Sox side, they're sending out RHP Steven Wright on Monday. Porcello has gone at least six innings in 20 consecutive starts, the majors' longest active streak.

"I'll be fine", Ramirez said.

Manager Kevin Cash said after the game that "we anticipate this will be a short stay". That's not the kind of company you want to keep.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi has been put on the 10-day disabled list by the Tampa Bay Rays because of a strained left hamstring.

Another reason that play was so damaging is because second year pitcher Blake Snell needs to get wins and some positive results to boost his confidence. Obviously, I had a rough outing my last time.

With his first three starts in 1998, Martinez set the bar ridiculously high for every new Red Sox ace who has followed. They finished '78 at 59-102, a step up from the 1977 team that went 54-107, but even that squad managed a 5-5 record through 10 games.

"It's a special day for the city and I'm just excited to have that opportunity", Wright said. Snell has a 3.18 ERA through 11 1/3 innings to start the year and while the Rays continue to be cautious with the youngster, he has loads of talent.

Wright (1-1) allowed one earned run and nine hits before being pulled after a leadoff single in the seventh inning.
