Twist Ending: With Two Outs in the Ninth, Mariners Put Up Five, Beat Red Sox
BOSTON (AP) — Austin Jackson's bases-loaded double with two outs in the ninth inning keyed a five-run rally, and the Seattle Mariners sent the Boston Red Sox to their sixth straight loss, 5-3 on Friday night.
Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (5-4) held a 3-0 lead with two outs and a runner on first before the Mariners broke loose. Seattle ended a nine-game losing streak at Fenway Park.
Jackson's drive down the left-field line drove in two runs, Dustin Ackley followed with a two-run single to give the Mariners the lead and Robinson Cano added an RBI single.
The Mariners had managed only two hits through the first eight innings.
Dominic Leone (6-2) pitched one inning of relief for the victory and Fernando Rodney got his 37th save.
