Red Sox 8, Mariners 6, 13 innings: M’s strand winning run at third, lose the game

What no-hitter are you talking about? Four outs away? Can’t remember that one. John Lackey quickly became a footnote in this game despite throwing eight innings of two-hit ball and giving his team a 6-1 lead to take into the ninth.
But hey, the M’s were due something in this long, terrible season and they got it in that historic ninth-inning rally to tie the score. And for one night at least, they had their seventh game of the World Series. Actually, they had one inning of it, in that ninth, when they scored five times to tie the game.
But then, the Mariners struck, the way they normally do.


They had the bases loaded with one out in the 12th inning, only to see Jose Lopez and Milton Bradley both pop out.
You kind of sensed that Eric Patterson would come through in that 13th for Boston, his two-out, two-run double to left center off Garrett Olson giving the Red Sox all they’d need.
Seattle went 1-2-3 in the 13th.
Well, at least it was entertaining.
