Segura gives Mariners walk-off win in 13 (0:23)

Mariners 6, Red Sox 5: Talk about a gut punch. One strike from winning a 13-inning marathon, the Red Sox lost on Guillermo Heredia's game-tying RBI single, a wild pitch by Doug Fister, a walk and an infield single by Jean Segura. Boston has lost four games in a row, their lead in the AL East down to one game over the Yankees. On a night when the Red Sox traded for infielder Eduardo Nunez, baby-faced 20-year-old top prospect Rafael Devers made his debut and went 0-for-4 with two walks, one run scored and a few nice defensive plays at third base.

Red Sox will send minor-league right-handers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos to the Giants in return for Eduardo Nunez. Anderson is 6-3 with a 3.42 ERA in 18 starts between two Class A levels; Santos, 17, is 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in seven rookie-ball starts.

Eduardo Nunez could potentially serve a few purposes for Red Sox: a) right-handed hitter can platoon at third with lefty-swinging Rafael Devers; b) can spell banged-up Xander Bogaerts at shortstop (Bogaerts has four hits in last 35 at-bats)

In their 102nd game, the Red Sox finally hit their 100th home run. Fittingly, it was a solo shot by Hanley Ramirez. Fifty-seven of the Red Sox's homers have been solos, including 12 of Ramirez's 17.

Kyrie: Will he stay or will he go?

In the wake of Kyrie Irving's demand to be traded, here are the most likely landing spots for the four-time NBA All-Star -- with the likeliest resulting in no trade at all.

With top prospect Rafael Devers set to make his major-league debut, the Red Sox are still looking to add a bat to their lineup. Several first base/DH types may wind up being available, including Jay Bruce, Lucas Duda and Yonder Alonso. "I know every effort is being made to find a fit," manager John Farrell said. "Where that leads us remains to be seen in these final days up to the deadline, but my conversations with Dave (Dombrowski), I know every effort is being made to do just that."

As he does with players from time to time, John Farrell called David Price into a meeting in his office today. Farrell said it was "nothing out of the ordinary," didn't share any other details.

Red Sox believed to still be focusing on relievers and third basemen before the trade deadline. They had scouts watching Philadelphia (Pat Neshek) and Detroit (Justin Wilson), among other teams, within the past few days. Although they're hoping top prospect Rafael Devers gives them the lift that Andrew Benintendi did a year ago, the continued third-base interest is presumably for a fallback option.

Rafael Devers will bat ninth in his major-league debut for the Red Sox tonight at Safeco Field. He will face Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
