Red Sox 6, Mariners 0

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Brian John­son, brought up from Class AAA Paw­tucket, pitched a five-hit­ter in his first big league ap­pear­ance at Fen­way Park to help Bos­ton stretch its win­ning streak to a sea­son-high six games.

The left-han­der struck out eight and walked none to be­come the first Red Sox pitcher to throw a shutout in his first Fen­way start since Pe­dro Martinez on April 11, 1998.

The 26-year-old’s only two pre­vi­ous big league starts were on the road.
