Red Sox 7, Mariners 6

BOSTON - Mark Loretta hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth, and the Red Sox, saved by Kevin Youkilis' hustle, rallied in the annual Patriots Day game.
As he rounded the bases after his first game-ending homer, Loretta thought about taking off his batting helmet to lessen the number of players who would jump on him. He decided against it.
"Having it being my first time, I thought I wanted the total experience," Loretta said. "(Jason) Varitek really gave it to me."
Mariners reliever Eddie Guardado struck out the first two in the ninth. Youkilis then hit a grounder up the middle and second baseman Jose Lopez made a diving stop, but his throw to first was a shade late.
Youkilis raised his arms after beating the play for an infield single, and Loretta followed with his first home run for the Red Sox.
NOTABLE: David Ortiz had his 21st career two-homer game and 19th with the Red Sox.
