It took a little longer than most would like, but the Boston Red Sox completed the three-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners on a two-RBI single by Mike Lowell.

Sean Casey added an RBI single to make it 6-3 in the top of the 12th for added measure.

Jonathan Papelbon earned the win and improved to 4-3 while Craig Hansen notched his second save.

Star of the Game: Lowell

A clutch hit when this team needed it most. Hats off. I think he should rub Jerry Remy’s shoulders before every game.

Next Game: Bring on JOBA

Yeah, that's right. If you are not pumped for this series, then you should become a Kansas City Royals fan.
