Red Sox Shut Out M's

SEATTLE (AP) - Aaron Cook threw a two-hitter in the finest performance of his career, Will Middlebrooks, Cody Ross and Daniel Nava all hit solo homers in the fifth inning, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 5-0 on Friday night.

Making his third start of the season, Cook (2-1) struck out two, walked none and needed just 81 pitches for his third career shutout and 12th complete game.

Cook's only hit allowed through seven innings came on a slow tapper from Ichiro Suzuki in the fourth inning. Dustin Pedroia charged and made a strong throw to try and get Suzuki, but first-base umpire Lance Barksdale ruled Suzuki safe on the bang-bang play.

John Jaso put any uncertainty around Suzuki's single to rest with a base hit to right field to lead off the eighth.
