had three hits and scored once for the Mariners, who took the last two contests.
Pinch-Hitter Milton Bradley added a bunt RBI single during Seattles three-run
eighth inning. It was the 2,500th win in Mariners history. Kevin Youkilis and
Adrian Beltre each knocked in a run for the Red Sox, who lost for the fourth
time in six games. Daisuke Matsuzaka surrendered four hits and a run, walked
five and had four strikeouts over six innings, while Seattles Doug Fister gave
up seven hits and two runs over five frames. Jose Lopez singled to start the
bottom of the eighth, prompting Hideki Okajima (3-3) to replace Daniel Bard.
Justin Smoak singled to left and Kotchman added a soft hit to the left side.
Okajima paused before throwing to first base, loading the bases with nobody out.
“It didnt look like there was a lot of urgency,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona
said of Kotchmans hit. “They are trying to give you an out and we didnt take it.
A lot of time good things dont happen after that.” Saunders then singled cleanly
to right field to provide the Mariners with the 3-2 lead. “These things add up
over time and give him a belief system that he can play,” Mariners manager Don
Wakamatsu said of Saunders, who had a big home run in Saturdays victory. “The
more time he can play the better he is going to be. Hes having good quality at
bats.” Bradley followed with a perfectly-placed squeeze bunt toward first base,
crossing up Okajima and first baseman Youkilis. Jack Wilson singled to right to
load the bases again, but Ichiro Suzuki grounded into a double play and
Ramon Ramirez fanned Chone Figgins to end the inning. David Aardsma retired the
side in order in the ninth for his 18th save. It gave Brandon League (8-6) the
win after he retired the final Boston batter in the eighth. Lopez singled in
Figgins in the third, but the Red Sox went ahead in the fourth as Youkilis
doubled in a run and Beltre followed with an RBI single to center. Game Notes
