Jason Varitek gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead with a homer in the second but the Mariners tied it up in the fifth. Brad Penny lasted through the sixth and was replaced by Masterson who kept the game tied. Oki pitched a scoreless eighth and the Red Sox offense failed to score in the bottom of the inning. Saito came in to pitch the 9th and gave up 3 walks and a bloop single to allow the Mariners to take a 1-run lead which would be all they would need.
