The Red Sox, meanwhile, are 3-11 in Wright's last 14 starts after allowing two runs or less in their previous game and are 0-8 in his last eight outings when their opponent scores two runs or less in their previous game.

It was just one game and one start, but showed Pomeranz does have what it takes to pitch in the American League.

The Red Sox are off to a 3-3 start this season, which can be classified as a small-sample disappointment considering the lofty expectations in Boston for 2017. He had a shutout going through six innings and held the Orioles to four hits before getting pulled in the seventh with Boston hanging on to a 2-1 lead.

"Everybody in the whole league's got it", Showalter told reporters here at Fenway Park on Wednesday. "Tonight was maybe a little bit more power than anticipated. I was trying to be aggressive", Pomeranz said.

Of Boston's 15 hits, perhaps only Vazquez's triple and Mitch Moreland's second-inning double were hard hit.

Prior to the game, John Farrell said he'd have the eighth. "They do a great job with it". "Just one of those nights where a lot of things fell their way".

But Hardy booted it, and instead of a double play, three runs came in. Pedroia then brought the final run home with an infield hit, Vazquez scoring his second run.

"No, I don't think it would", Showalter said. It just kind of unraveled.

In a cruel twist of fate, Clay Buchholz left his second start with the Phillies at the same time that Josh Tobias, the player he was traded for, homered.

Buck Showalter doesn't give a flying expletive about the Red Sox's flu issues. "I didn't know that", Showalter said. "Our guys have done a good job not broadcasting it to the world". That's ridiculous, but appreciate you trying to go down that road, that's typical. "I just want to make sure I am able to make all the same powerful moves I made before with no hesitation.". He had missed the previous four games after being placed on the bereavement list.
