Mariners score three in 10th to stun Red Sox

Mariners, Red Sox

The Seattle Mariners scored three times in the bottom of the 10th inning to defeat the visiting Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Saturday in the third game of a four-game series.

Julio Rodriguez singled with one out in the 10th to score Josh Rojas from third with the game-winning run.

The Red Sox took a 2-1 lead when a Pablo Reyes single to right drove in Ceddanne Rafaela in the top of the 10th, and they extended their lead to 3-1 on an RBI single by Masataka Yoshida that drove in Reece McGuire with two outs in the inning.

Seattle’s Luke Raley drove in Ty France with a single to make it a 3-2 game, and Rojas’ single plus an error on right fielder Wilyer Abreu put runners on second and third with one out. Raley scored on a fielder’s choice — J.P. Crawford’s grounder to second — before Rodriguez came up with the game-winning hit against Justin Slaten.

Joely Rodriguez (0-1), who allowed all three runs in the 10th, took the loss. Tayler Saucedo (1-0) recorded the final out in the top of the 10th to earn the win.

Kutter Crawford pitched the first six innings for Boston. He allowed an unearned run on three hits, walked one and struck out seven. Boston’s starting pitchers have surrendered four runs in 17 innings, with one walk and 19 strikeouts this season.

Seattle starting pitcher Logan Gilbert also turned in a strong performance. Gilbert limited Boston to one run on four hits in seven innings, walked one and recorded eight strikeouts.

The Mariners grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Crawford led off the inning with a bunt single, and took second on a Reyes throwing error. Crawford scored on a two-out single by Mitch Haniger.

Reyes got the start at third base when Rafael Devers was scratched for the second consecutive game with soreness in his left shoulder. Before Saturday’s game, Boston manager Alex Cora said he expects Devers will return to the lineup Sunday.

The Red Sox made it a 1-1 game in the top of the fifth, when Rafaela doubled, took third on an Enmanuel Valdez fly out to left and scored on a Reyes grounder to shortstop.

Rafaela collected two of Boston’s seven hits in the game.

The Red Sox struck out 13 times Saturday, after striking out 13 times during Friday’s 1-0 loss.
