Workman, homers lift Red Sox


Brandon Workman allowed one run in six innings and was backed by three home runs to earn his first major-league win as host Boston handed the Seattle Mariners an 8-2 setback on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series.


Dustin Pedroia and Jarrod Saltalamacchia belted two-run homers and Jacoby Ellsbury added a solo shot for the Red Sox, who beat Seattle for the fourth consecutive time. Shane Victorino had three hits and scored three times.


Workman (1-1) struck out a season-high nine and allowed six hits, blanking the Mariners after yielding a two-out RBI double to Kendry Morales in the first inning. Workman coasted into the sixth inning before giving up three straight one-out singles to load the bases, but he came back to fan Michael Morse and Justin Smoak to escape the jam unscathed.


Joe Saunders (9-10) lost his second straight following a four-start win streak, allowing six runs — five earned — and nine hits in five innings. He fell into a 5-1 hole when Ellsbury went deep in the second and Pedroia (three RBIs) added a two-run shot two batters later to snap a 0-for-16 skid.


Kyle Seager and Morales had two hits apiece for the Mariners, who collected three straight two-out hits off Pedro Beato in the ninth inning before losing for only the fourth time in 14 games.
