The Red sox jumped to a quick 4-0 lead, thanks in part to a 2-run third inning. The Sox had nobody out with the bases loaded, and were able to drive home a pair. Unfortunately, Jon Lester only pitched 5 2/3 innings while giving up 5 runs and 2 homers, both to Ichiro Suzuki. There was good news for the Boston club, as Jacoby Ellsbury kept his bat hot, keeping a 10-game hit streak alive by going 3 for 5 with an RBI. Takashi Saito, who had been having major troubles earlier in the season, gave up a hit and a walk, however he was able to end the eighth inning unscathed. Former Red sox relief pitcher David Aardsma earned the save for Seattle, as he pitched a perfect ninth.
