Newcomers fill utility roles for M's, Red Sox

Paxton, nicknamed "Big Maple" because of he's a native of Canada, certainly gave them a show Monday night, pitching seven scoreless innings and striking out 10 batters and the Mariners got a home run from Kyle Seager in a 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The plan is for Devers to be in the lineup Tuesday, when the Mariners are starting RHP Felix Hernandez (5-4, 3.88 ERA) against Boston LHP Drew Pomeranz (10-4, 3.51).

Hoping to get more production at third base, the AL East leaders called up the 20-year-old Devers after just nine games at Triple-A Pawtucket. "That's the first time with a tree". Gamel charged the ball and made a strong throw in an attempt to get Ramirez at the plate, but the runner slid home safely as catcher Mike Zunino bobbled the throw. "But I think we'll have to probably sit down and visit how he's going to be used".

Eduardo Rodriguez (4-3) allowed four runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings. "I know my role is going to be give guys a day off and come in late (in games)".

"That's huge", Espinosa said. Pomeranz has yet to lose to Seattle, going 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA in 12 career appearances (three starts).

Though the Red Sox anticipated an offensive drop-off without David Ortiz's bat this season, they did not expect it to be this steep.

With his 200th strikeout, this is now Chris Sale's 5th straight season with 200 strikeouts.

The Mariners were 3-12 in their past 15 games at home and had lost three of four against the New York Yankees over the weekend to again fall below.500. He has three complete games against Seattle, the most against any opponent.

"The competitor that he is", Farrell said.

Now the Mariners will face the American League's best pitcher and Cy Young favorite on Wednesday in the finale with the series win in their pocket. The under is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Seattle.

"Given his track record ... it'll be a fun challenge".

Asked whether the Red Sox could make another trade to help the offense, Dombrowski said: "Some of the times, guys have to do it themselves from within". "You can't put added pressure on yourself by looking at the scoreboard or anything like that. And that's just what I intend to do and how I approach the game". The veteran infielder was traded to Boston for two minor leaguers.

With one out, Seager got an infield single, hitting the ball between first baseman Mitch Moreland and second baseman Pedroia. For Boston, he could share time at third with newly promoted Rafael Devers, but he also could see action at shortstop, second base and the outfield corners.
