Sexson settles seesaw battle
'Pen pressed into action
David Ortiz had a team-high three hits, including an RBI single to tie the game in the sixth, but he was unable to produce any late-inning heroics. Boston played from behind for most of the game after Kason Gabbard allowed four runs in 3 1/3 innings -- the shortest outing for a Red Sox starter this year.

Richie Sexson hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning to break the third tie of the game. Every Mariners starter had at least one hit, run scored or RBI to pick up Felix Hernandez, who allowed five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. J.J. Putz got the final five outs for his 22nd save in as many chances.
