The Red Sox staged a late rally on Saturday, but fell short to the Seattle Mariners in a 6-5 loss on The Left Coast. Yet another crappy starting pitching performance—this time by Eduardo Rodriguez—put The Carmine Hose in a hole. ERod pitched just 4.1 innings—yielding five earned runs on eight hits. So far, Boston's starting pitching has been putrid—with Rick Porcello taking his shot at some degree of competency on Sunday. Boston staged a late, ninth-inning rally (fueled mostly by crappy Seattle defense), but fell short in a 6-5 loss. Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez and Jackie Bradley, Jr. each had two hits in the loss. The Boston bullpen again pitched well—giving up no runs in 3.2 innings. Boston looks to even the series on Sunday before heading to Oakland for a Monday night tilt against the A's.
