Mariners easily defeat lifeless looking Red Sox 4-1

This wasn’t exactly a game they’ll show on highlight films years from now, except maybe in New England, where it could be known as the day Bobby Valentine was dispatched back to the broadcast booth.
The Red Sox insist Valentine isn’t going anyplace, which could be viewed as as vote of confidence or a punishment depending on how you look at your partially-filled glass. Anyhow, the Mariners defeated Valentine’s lifeless-looking Red Sox 4-1 today. A better way of seeing it is that the Mariners were better in their one good inning than the visitors were in theirs.
Seattle scored all of its runs in the fourth inning, erasing the lone run Boston had in the opening frame.
Jason Vargas didn’t allow a home run and tossed seven pretty good innings with very minimal damage allowed.
That’s the best I’ve got for this one. Sorry. But hey, it’s a win. The Mariners haven’t had very many of them go this easily when they only play one good inning on offense. They kept all of that annoying Red Sox Nation noise down to a whisper after the fourth, so that’s a big deal, too.
