Red Sox end losing streak with come-from-behind win

Losers of three games in a row, the Red Sox were desperate for a win Tuesday night in Seattle. Although it wasn’t the prettiest, the Sox defeated the Mariners 11-8 to avoid losing their fourth straight game for the first time all season.

The Red Sox trailed 5-1 after the second inning, but scored five runs in the third and single runs in the fourth and fifth before adding three more insurance runs in the eighth to ultimately come away with the win. Starter Allen Webster struggled, going just 2 1/3 innings allowing seven runs on six hits. The Red Sox bullpen pitched the final 6 2/3 innings, allowing only one run, in impressive performances from all five pitchers involved.

Junichi Tazawa allowed the lone run coming in the eighth inning, his only inning of work, while Alfredo Aceves (2/3 inning), Craig Breslow (2 1/3 innings, win), Andrew Bailey (1 2/3 innings) and Koji Uehara (1 inning, save) all had scoreless relief appearances.

Offensively the Red Sox had 16 hits, including five home runs. David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino, and Jackie Bradley Jr. all homered in the win as every starter recorded a hit. Ortiz led the way going 4-for-5 with the homer and two doubles.

The teams will continue their four-game set tomorrow night (10:10, NESN) where Felix Doubront will go up against Aaron Harang.

What they’ll be saying: The Red Sox somehow pulled out a win after getting another poor outing from Webster. The rookie is starting to show maybe he isn’t quite ready for the major leagues just yet. He is slated to start the last game of the first half Sunday, but that could all change between now and then … After struggling of late, the Red Sox bullpen put together one of its best performances of the year, led by Breslow and Bailey to pick up Webster and going along with the powerful offensive output were able to put an end to their three-game skid.
