Sox fall to Ichiro and M's 7-4

Mariners - 7
Red Sox - 4

W: Green (5-1)
L: Timlin (1-1)
S: Putz (32)

In a game with more then one controversial call, the Sox really just couldn't overcome the adversety they faced this game. It was a rough loss, especially after a few blown calls that would of changed the complexity of the game. One was a tag by Kevin Youkilis the umpire missed (below) and the other was a Mike Lowell tag at third base the umpire also missed. But in the end, the Sox offense didn't do enough to get the win. Big Papi hit a home run but it wasn't enough as Seattle's Yuniesky Betancourt knocked in 4 RBI's including a 3-run home run to secure the victory for the Mariners. The Sox left 5 runners in scoring position with 2 outs. They just weren't hitting like usual. The M's won the game 7-4 and continued their regular season dominance over the Sox in '07. They lead the series 1-0, today Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Sox look to tie up the series.
