Congrats to Jason Vargas!
this win brings his victory total to 14 – a total not reached by a Mariner lefty (or, for that matter, any M’s pitcher not named Felix Hernandez) since 2003 (Jamie Moyer)

The Sox took the early lead on a Dustin Pedroia double (the ONLY extra base hit of the game) and a Cody Ross single. Buchholz was in command through the first three but, in the 4th, the wheels came off a bit and the M’s singled (3x) ’em to death, along with getting HBP, taking advantage of an error and getting a sac-fly. That would be IT and that would be ENOUGH.
