Boston started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the first when they came up with 5 runs on 7 hits. That early run support was all that Oil Can Boyd(10-5) required. Boston out-hit Seattle for the game, 17 hits to 9.
Jim Beattie(4-9) was charged with the loss. He pitched 6 innings and surrendered 14 hits and 1 walk.
