Taking full advantage of some wildness on the part of the Seattle pitching staff, the Red Sox raced out to a big lead early, then held off the Mariners, 5-3.

The Sox worked a total of seven walks, including six in the first two innings, two with the bases loaded.

Eduardo Rodriguez gave the Sox seven strong innings, allowing three runs without issuing a walk and striking out eight.

The victory evened the Sox' record on their 10-game homestand at 5-5.
