Sox lose again

SEATTLE – The Red Sox are now 1-5 on the West Coast leg of this 10-game road trip.

The Sox bowed to the Mariners, 1-0, at Safeco Field before 30,752 as the trio of Erik Bedard, Brandon Morrow, and J.J. Putz held the Red Sox to two hits, wasting a nice performance by Tim Wakefield, who went eight innings in the loss.

The Sox had runners on first and second in the ninth as a result of two walks by Putz, but Coco Crisp grounded to second to end the game.
