ERod (pictured), scattered five hits and walked three to pick up his fourth win of the year. He also struck out four in his seventh straight quality start.

The bullpen trio of Heath Hembree, Matt Barnes and Craig Kimbrel limited the Mariners to one lone single over the final three innings. Kimbrel earned his thirteenth save and has now retired 35 of the last 37 batters he has faced.

Boston scored its first run in the bottom of the second on an RBI ground out by Josh Rutledge and added two more in the sixth on a wild pitch and a passed ball.

Hanley Ramirez and Christian Vazquez each had a pair of hits in the victory.

Dustin Pedroia was out of the lineup for precautionary purposes after tweaking his left knee in Thursday night's game.
