Red Sox come-from-behind to top Mariners in extra innings

After trailing 5-1 in the third inning and 7-4 after four, the Red Sox scored three runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to tie the game at seven, before eventually coming away with an 8-7 win in 10 innings over the Mariners in Seattle Thursday afternoon. The Red Sox took three-of-four from the Mariners.

With two outs in the tenth inning the Mariners intentionally walked Jacoby Ellsbury with Jackie Bradley Jr. on second base to get to Daniel Nava who came through with a clutch two-out, RBI single, scoring Bradley Jr. proving to be the game-winning run. Ellsbury paced the offense going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs in the win, while Brock Holt and Jose Iglesias also had two hits apiece.

Starter Ryan Dempster didn’t have his best stuff as he allowed seven runs (four earned) on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings of work. Fortunately for the Sox, after being called up yesterday Steven Wright came in and pitched the next 5 2/3 innings allowing no runs on just three hits, to earn his first major league win. Koji Uehara pitched a 1-2-3 tenth to pick up the save.

The Red Sox will now travel to Oakland to conclude the first half of the season with a weekend set with the A’s beginning tomorrow night (10:05, NESN) where John Lackey will take to the mound and be opposed by Jarrod Parker.

What they’ll be saying: It goes without saying the MVP of the game was Wright, who provided the Sox with outstanding relief to earn his first big league win. Wright, primarily a starter with Pawtucket, came into the game hot, allowing no runs in his previous two starts spanning 16 innings carrying it over into Thursday … The Sox had plenty of clutch-hitting in the game, none other than Nava’s single in the tenth. Overall, the team went 7-for-14 with runners in scoring position while Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 19 games.
