 Varitek's two-run double
 Ramirez's RBI double
Jason Varitek's two-run double in the fourth inning got the Sox on the board and gave them an early lead. Daisuke Matsuzaka would do the rest. Dice-K allowed the Mariners two runs with 10 strikeouts over seven innings, but the bullpen held off a late charge.
