Rob Johnson ties a club record as Mariners win 7-6 in 11 innings

The Mariners owe a huge round of thanks to Chris Jakubauskas after this nerve-wracking win over the Boston Red Sox. Jakubauskas came on and tossed two scoreless innings to pick up the win, settling things down after that blown lead in the eighth.
Rob Johnson then did the unthinkable, tying a club record with his third double of the game, off Ramon Ramirez in the 11th, to give Seattle two runs and an eventual 7-6 victory.

Mark Lowe pitched the 11th and gave up a solo homer to George Kottaras (a Canadian, of course) to make everybody sweat just a little bit more.
But Lowe picked up the save for a bullpen that could be in serious trouble this weekend if starters don’t go deep.
We’ll see.
We’ve told you the bullpen issues already. They are still there. But somehow, some way, the Mariners are now 4-3 on this road trip.
