A shaky start from Kyle Wright set the tone of Tuesday night’s 9-4 loss to the Red Sox. Wright gave up 6 runs in 4.2 frames. Each of those 6 runs came in the second inning.

The Braves offense began to chip away at the deficit, but the bats weren’t hot enough to outlast Boston’s 3-run ninth, courtesy of Tyler Thornburg’s messy outing.
