Drew’s RBI single in 15th gives Red Sox 5-4 win

Stephen Drew singled in the winning run in the 15th inning to
lift the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners
and back into first place in the AL East on Wednesday night.

Dustin Pedroia drew a leadoff walk and took second on a
groundout by David Ortiz. Mike Napoli was walked intentionally and
Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out. Jonny Gomes then walked, loading
the bases, and Drew hit a liner just inside the right-field line as
Pedroia scored the decisive run.

Boston moved a half-game ahead of Tampa Bay in the division. The
Rays lost 7-0 Wednesday night to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Drew Britton (1-0) pitched two innings for his first major
league win. Lucas Luetge (0-2) took the loss.
