Red Sox fall to Dogers 2-0

Red SoxLOS ANGELES (AP) — Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of two-hit ball, Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer with two outs in the fourth and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Friday night in the opener of an interleague series that began as a matchup between first-place teams.

The Dodgers won their fourth in a row, while the Red Sox lost for the sixth time in eight games. With the loss, Boston fell percentage points behind Tampa Bay in the AL East standings.

Nolasco and John Lackey dueled through eight innings of Boston’s first visit to Dodger Stadium since 2002. They combined for just five hits in a game that lasted barely two hours.

Nolasco (10-9) struck out six and walked none in tying his longest outing of the season. The right-hander reached double-digit victories for the sixth consecutive season, joining teammate Zack Greinke, Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia as the only pitchers to do so every year since 2008.
