Ackley, M's Beat BoSox 7-3

BOSTON (AP) -- Dustin Ackley's three-run homer capped a seven-run fourth inning that carried the Seattle Mariners to a 7-3 win over Boston on Saturday, sending the Red Sox to their seventh straight loss.

It was the ninth win in 12 games for the Mariners, who increased their slim lead over Detroit for the second AL wild-card spot.

Boston designated hitter David Ortiz had his streak of reaching base four times in four straight games halted, but he did walk and was hit by a pitch before leaving with a bruised left elbow.

Dustin Pedroia had a double and two singles for the Red Sox.

Trailing 3-0 in the fourth, the Mariners chased starter Brandon Workman (1-8) with their big inning.

Chris Denorfia had an RBI double, and Chris Taylor and Jesus Sucre added run-scoring singles before Ackley hooked a drive around the right-field foul pole. Workman's wild pitch allowed Denorfia to score the tying run.

Tom Wilhelmsen (2-2) struck out three in 1 1-3 innings of relief after starter Chris Young couldn't make it out of the fourth.

Young gave up three runs on seven hits and five walks in 3 2-3 innings, his shortest start since his second of the season when he lasted just three innings at Miami.

Workman lost his seventh consecutive start, getting tagged for seven runs and 10 hits in 3 1-3 innings.

Boston took a 3-0 lead with single runs in the first three innings.

David Ross had an RBI double for Boston before getting ejected by first base umpire Vic Carapazza.
