Remember how good those last-minute Red Sox wins on Sunday and Monday felt?

Tuesday night's 8th-inning collapse was like a kick in the teeth.

Seattle scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat the Red Sox 5-4 at Safeco Park.

David Price (pictured) took a shutout into the bottom of the eighth inning, having blanked the Mariners on just three hits through seven. He struck out five and didn't walk anyone before giving up four straight hits in the eighth.

Newly acquired reliever Fernando Abad took the loss after serving up a three-run homer to Robinson Cano.

Boston took a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI double by David Ortiz and added two more runs in the fourth on a solo home run by Hanley Ramirez and an RBI single by Aaron Hill.

Ortiz drove in the final Red Sox run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth.
