News: James Paxton improved to 10-3, allowing four hits over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-0 on Monday. Paxton struck out 10, ending the game with a 2.84 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Paxton has allowed six earned runs in 33 1/3 innings and not given up a home run in five starts this month. ''I think it's five wins in the month of July. He's got a chance to get one more,'' manager Scott Servais said. ''It's hard to win six games in a month. I don't know if it's ever been done by a Mariner before, but hopefully we'll see it.''
