Recap - Sox slam three home runs to back Workman's first W
Jim Monaghan Contributing writer
The Red Sox slammed three home runs to support Brandon Workman's first major league victory as Boston beat up on the Seattle Mariners 8-2 at Fenway Park.
Workman threw six strong innings striking out nine and walking just one. He scattered six hits and was charged with one run. He's now pitched at least six innings in three of his four games this season.
The Mariners jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning off Workman, but the Red Sox responded with two runs in the first, three more in the second, a single run in the fourth and finally two more in the eighth. Jacoby Ellsbury (pictured), Dustin Pedroia and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each had home runs for Boston. Shane Victorino added three hits on the night as well.
