Daisuke Matsuzaka shut out the Mariners on two hits through seven innings before giving up three straight hits, including the first big-league hit by Worcester's Bryan LaHair and a double by longtime nemesis Ichiro Suzuki.

Hideki Okajima, who hadn't pitched in nine days, came on to register two outs in the eighth, Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 30th save, and Daisuke ran his record to 11-1, even as his streak of 24 1/3 scoreless innings came to an end.

J.D. Drew hit his 18th homer off Seattle knuckleballer R.A. Dickey in the first and the Sox scored three times in the fifth, a rally touched off by Jacoby Ellsbury's bunt single.
