Brock Holt's (pictured) RBI single in the top of the eleventh inning lifted the Red Sox to a 3-2 win over the Mariners at Safeco Field and gave Boston a split of the four-game series.

Drew Pomeranz earned a no-decision with his six innings of work. He gave up both Seattle runs on just four hits but walked a career-high six batters. He is still winless since coming to Boston in a trade last month.

Travis Shaw gave Boston a 1-0 lead in the second inning with his thirteenth home run of the season. The Red Sox doubled up on the lead in the fifth on a two-base hit by Mookie Betts that scored Bryce Brentz.

After the Mariners tied the score in the bottom of the inning, the teams traded shutout innings until Holt's single in the eleventh scoring Shaw.

The Red Sox bullpen - Robbie Ross Jr., Junichi Tazawa, Fernando Abad, Craig Kimbrel, and Brad Ziegler - combined for five scoreless innings.

Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Dustin Pedroia, and Shaw each had two hits for Boston in the victory.
