Mariners drop series finale to Red Sox, 4-0

The Mariners are now 51-52 on the season. The Mariners are now 51-52 on the season.

SEATTLE (AP) - Chris Sale pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, top prospect Rafael Devers became the youngest Boston player to hit a home run in more than 50 years, and the Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Wednesday to salvage the final game of the series.
    
Barely 12 hours after the clubs wrapped up a five-hour, 13-inning marathon, the Red Sox got exactly what they needed from their ace to avoid being swept. The left-hander was masterful, striking out 11, the 14th time this season he had at least 10 strikeouts in a game. He allowed doubles to Jean Segura and Guillermo Heredia, and a broken-bat single to Ben Gamel, but none of the three to reach base via hit ever advanced.
    
Sale (13-4) has struck out at least nine batters in each of his 12 road starts this season, the longest streak dating to 1913.
