Boston Red Sox defeat Seattle Mariners, 5-3

After three low-key nights, nights of little talk and lots of heads hunched over plates of postgame food, there was reason for loud music last night in the visitors' clubhouse at Safeco Field.

For the first time in too long, or after a seven-game losing streak, the Red Sox finally won a game on the road. And they did it in the late innings, breaking open a tie game in the eighth, against a pitcher, Felix Hernandez, with the potential for no-hit stuff.
