BOSTON (AP) — Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two homers and three doubles to drive in seven runs as the Boston Red Sox once again battered Seattle, roughing up Felix Hernandez and the Mariners 22-10 Saturday.
The Red Sox broke loose for the second straight day after manager John Farrell took a medical leave for the rest of the season to deal with lymphoma. He said he had a ‘‘highly curable’’ form of cancer about three hours before Friday’s 15-1 romp, with bench coach Torey Lovullo running the team.
Boston got 26 hits in the highest-scoring game ever against the Mariners. Pablo Sandoval and Alejandro De Aza homered, and David Ortiz and Blake Swihart each had three RBIs.
Sandoval homered in his first at-bat, then was hit in the right elbow by Hernandez and left with a bruise.
Nelson Cruz hit his major league-leading 35th homer for the Mariners.
Hernandez (14-7) was tagged for a career high-tying 10 runs in just 2 1-3 innings.
Wade Miley (9-9) went seven innings.
