Mariners rally with 4-run 10th, beat Red Sox 7-3 on 3 hits

BOSTON (AP) – Mitch Haniger hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning moments after Sam Haggerty’s go-ahead double, and the Seattle Mariners rallied past the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Thursday night despite getting just three hits on a cold, blustery night.

Haggerty made it 4-3 with his double off Darwinzon Hernandez (0-1), Seattle’s first hit since Ty France’s tying, two-run double against Nick Pivetta with two outs in the fifth that snapped the right-hander’s no-hit bid.

Haniger, who walked twice, came up later in the 10th and belted a shot out to right-center for his fifth homer of the season.

Haggerty doubled in his only at-bat after entering the game as a pinch-runner in the eighth, tying it at 3 when he scored on a throwing error one inning after Boston had reclaimed a one-run lead.

Rafael Devers homered for the Red Sox, who were cruising behind Pivetta but couldn’t hold leads of 2-0 and 3-2.

Kiké Hernández led off the seventh with a triple against Seattle reliever Casey Sadler, who bounced an 0-2 curveball for a wild pitch that got past catcher Luis Torrens and allowed Alex Verdugo to score the go-ahead run.

Seattle tied it again the eighth with help from a throwing error by reliever Adam Ottavino, who fielded J.P. Crawford’s sacrifice bunt cleanly but made a wild throw to third that allowed Haggerty to come all the way around from second.

Devers gave Boston the first lead of the game with a solo homer to right to start the second, clearing the Red Sox bullpen by several rows for his sixth of the season.

Devers led off the fourth with a single, stole second and scored on a single to right by Hunter Renfroe to put Boston up 2-0

Mariners. He struck out five and walked one.

Pivetta pitched six innings, allowing two earned runs on one hit, walking three and striking out four.

Rafael Montero (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mariners: France started as DH for the first time since taking a pitch off his right forearm Monday against the Dodgers. Manager Scott Servais said France, who struck out as a pinch-hitter Tuesday, was feeling better and would likely get some defensive time in the next few games as the Mariners try to rotate DH duties during the eight-game road trip that kicked off Thursday.

UP NEXT

Mariners LHP Yusei Kikuchi (0-0, 4.74 ERA) faces Boston LHP Martín Pérez (0-1, 5.93) Friday night in the second of the four-game series.
