Boston finishes up a 10-game road trip here with the offense looking out of gas, scoring 11 runs the last five games. Boston is 4-10 against the AL West and forced to go with 30-year-old knuckler Steven Wright (4.22 ERA), who has allowed 18 base runners in 10+ innings (6 walks, 12 hits). The last three years he has a 5.27 ERA on the road. Seattle plays its ninth straight home game. The Red Sox are 7-16 on the road against a left-handed starter and face southpaw James Paxton. Paxton is off an 11-4 rout of San Diego, throwing six shutout innings, and has a 1.82 ERA in his last four starts. Paxton is 6-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 11 starts at Safeco Field, and the team is 8-3 when he starts at home. Play Seattle.
