The Boston Red Sox had to play extra innings on Wednesdsay but they were able to come away with the 6-3 victory in 13 innings and complete a three game sweep of the Seattle Mariners.  Mike Lowell had a two run single and Sean Casey added a rbi single in the 13th inning to provide the winning runs for the Red Sox.  It was awesome to see the Red Sox come back and win this game!

Lowell finished the game with two rbi while Casey, Coco Crisp, and Kevin Youklilis all had one rbi each.  There wasn’t a whole lot of offense for the Sox today but they did enougn to pull out the victory.

Jonathan Papelbon ended up getting the win and is now 4-3 on the season.  Craig Hansen pitched the bottom of the 13th inning to record his second save of the season.  Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz pitched 5 1/3 innings to get the no decision.  He allowed seven hits and three runs in the game.

The Yankees will now be coming into Boston for big series.  Hopefully the Red Sox swing the bats better then they did on Wednesday or else they will find themselves losing to the Yankees.
