Doubront, Ortiz lead Red Sox over Mariners

Led by Felix Doubront and David Ortiz the Red Sox defeated the Mariners 11-4 Wednesday night in Seattle. It was the second straight win for the Red Sox and the team is now 3-3 on their West Coast trip, with four games remaining.

Doubront pitched one of his best games of the season going seven innings allowing one run on five hits while striking out six. He allowed the lone run in the seventh inning on a Henry Blanco single. Brandon Workman made his debut in the final two innings where he allowed three runs, all coming in the eighth, while recording strikeouts on four of his six outs.

Ortiz paced the offense going 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and 3 RBIs. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 18 games, while Shane Victorino (2 RBIs) had two hits in the win. As a team the Sox recorded 12 hits with every starter besides Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli hitting safely.

The teams will close out their series tomorrow afternoon (3:40, NESN) where Ryan Dempster will be opposed by Erasmo Ramirez.

What they’ll be saying: The Red Sox needed an easy victory like this as they hadn’t really had a game like this in their previous five West Coast games. Doubront was outstanding, picking up his sixth win of the season. He’s now allowed two earned runs or less in each of his last five starts and he and John Lackey have picked up the slack with Clay Buchholz on the DL and Jon Lester not his usual self … With a double in the second inning, Ortiz became the league’s all-time hits leader for a designated hitter with double in the second inning as he passed Harold Baines on the all-time list.
