BOSTON -- Steven Wright took a step in the right direction Monday after putting up a stinker last week.
The knuckleballer bounced back with six innings of three-run ball and the Boston Red Sox scored three runs in the second to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Patriots Day at Fenway Park.
Wright (1-1) served up four homers and eight runs in just 1 1/3 innings last Wednesday against Baltimore. The former All-Star allowed just one earned run, nine hits and a walk with four strikeouts this time around.
