Displaying their coolest-looking alternate uniforms ever (in honor of the Negro Leagues' Boston Royal Giants), the Red Sox beat Felix Hernandez and the Mariners, 4-2. Starter Rick Porcello turned in another solid performance—getting into the seventh inning and giving up just two earned runs. Solo HRs were hit by David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval to pace The Carmine Hose offense—while rookie catcher Blake Swihart went 2-4 with an RBI double. Dustin Pedroia also had two hits. Koji Uehara got his ninth save.
