The Red Sox look to bounce back after a brutal defeat yesterday at the hands of Mike Moore. Who by the way is the only pitcher worth a darn on the team. Young and Langston have been horrible. These two pitchers would make a go of it as we were scoreless through 5 and then the Red Sox get it going.
In the 6th with Evans on 2nd due to a single and an error on Ramos, Rice comes through with a single to score Evans and it is 1-0. Then Armas single and Easler walks to load the bases. Buckner smacks a single to right and that will score Rice. Armas looked like he wanted to test Cowens's arm but then thought again as Cowens has a rifle for an arm and it is now 2-0 Red Sox. In the bottom of the 6th the Mariners bounce back with a couple runs of their own. Thomas walks with 1 out, Cowens then singles. Then Hendeson doubles scoring Thomas to make it 2-1. Presley then follows with a deep SACFLY to left and that scores Cowens and we are now tied at 2.
The game would remain deadlocked at 2 until the 10th. With 1-out Easler hits a 3 run homer to make it 5-2. Bob Stanley comes in and shuts down the Mariners and earns the save.
The Final Score 5-2 Red Sox
