Johnson pitched a five hitter in his first big league appearance at Fenway, and the Boston Red Sox jerseys stretched their winning streak to a season high six games with a 6 0 victory over the Seattle Mariners jerseys on Saturday.
The 26 year old left hander became the first Red Sox jerseys pitcher to throw a shutout in his first Fenway start since Pedro Martinez on April 11, 1998. In Johnson’s first start in Fenway his fourth as a professional he sustained a season ending facial fracture when he hit by a line drive while pitching for Class A Lowell in 2012.
“The last time I walked off the mound here was 2012 and I made two pitches,” Johnson said. “Today I went nine innings. Today was pretty cool.”
Johnson left Triple A for a little over a month last season to get treatment for an anxiety issue.
“Obviously with some stuff that I’ve been gone through in my career, it’s an awesome feeling” he said.
But despite the stellar outing, Johnson was optioned back to Triple A after the game.
“That’s the reality of the game,” Red Sox jerseys manager John Farrell said. “We had a chance to congratulate him and yet option him back to Pawtucket, with cheap David Price jersey coming here Monday.”
Brought up from the minors for the start, Johnson (2 0) gave up five singles, struck out eight and walked none. His only previous big league starts were at Houston on July 21, 2015, and at Toronto on April 18 this year.
Johnson was helped by a semi leaping catch by center fielder cheap Jackie Bradley Jr. jersey at the wall in the sixth, Bradley’s diving grab of cheap Nelson Cruz jersey’s sinking liner in the ninth and Bradley’s game ending running catch of cheap Kyle Seager jersey’s drive.

Shut out for the second straight day, Seattle has lost seven of eight.
“Their guy threw the ball over the plate. He threw strikes,” Mariners jerseys manager Scott Servais said. “I won’t take anything away from what he did, but we’re not swinging the bat very well.”
cheap Rob Whalen jersey (0 1) gave up five runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in his Mariners jerseys’ debut, his first big league start since Aug. 23 for Atlanta. He is Seattle’s 12th starting pitcher, the most in the major leagues.

He was hit by a pitch on the right forearm his first time up and went 1 for 3. . 3B cheap Pablo Sandoval jersey, on the DL with a sprained right knee, was expected to play nine cheap mlb majestic jerseys innings Saturday night in a rehab assignment with Triple A Pawtucket.
