The Mariners and Red Sox have played four innings in 1 hours, 2 minutes, as Chris Sale and Marco Gonzales are trading a bunch of zeroes. Sale has 7 K's and 39 of 50 pitches for strikes, while Gonzales has allowed one hit and is at 43 of 63 pitches for strikes.

The Mariners, trying to snap a five-game skid, take a 5-0 lead when Kyle Seager beats pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez to first base and Mitch Haniger comes around from second base to score. Is this a bad time to mention the Mariners have blown 5-run leads in two of their past three games?

Interesting replay overturn in Boston: The Red Sox had apparently tied the game on a bases-loaded wild pitch, but the Mariners appealed and it was ruled Rafael Devers had swung at the pitch and the ball glanced off his foot, making it a dead ball and the runners forced to return to their bases. Devers then grounded out to end the inning.

Entering tonight, teams were 409-19 when leading by 5+ runs at any point in a game. The Mariners are in danger of blowing their second five-run lead in three games as the Red Sox have rallied from a 10-5 deficit to take a 12-10 lead. J.D. Martinez puts them ahead with a two-run single, his fourth hit of the game.

J.D. Martinez slams a 1-2 pitch over the center field fence for his 23rd home run to bring the Red Sox to 10-8. Forget Ichiro. Let's just get Nellie Cruz and Martinez in the Home Run Derby.

Red Sox reliever Brian Johnson will get the chance to face Mike Zunino next inning. The two were three-year teammates at the University of Florida and first-round picks in 2012. During BP, Zunino came over and gave Johnson a big embrace and the two chatted for a bit. He's 0-for-3 with two K's against Johnson.

Have a night, Nelson Cruz: he crushes another knuckleball from Steven Wright that didn't knuckle and belts his second three-run homer of the game. He's 3-for-3 with seven RBIs and has his second multi-homer game of 2018. The Mariners lead 10-5 and Wright is out of the game.

Just like that, the Red Sox erase the 4-0 deficit. Last weekend at Safeco Field, Wade LeBlanc held the Red Sox scoreless for 7.2 innings and retired 22 straight at one point. Tonight, he was eight pitches in and the first four batters had reached with hits. With two outs, Christian Vazquez doubles into the triangle and the Red Sox lead 5-4. It's old-school Fenway Park baseball.

Coming off a three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium, this series at Fenway shapes up an important one for the Mariners as they get tested against the AL's best. Nelson Cruz gives them a first-inning lead with a three-run homer over the Green Monster off knuckleballer Steven Wright and Ryon Healy then crushes his first pitch for another homer. Red Sox fans still waiting in line for a Fenway Frank will find their team down 4-0 before finding their seats.

Mariners place RHPs Nicasio, Altavillla on DL

The Seattle Mariners have placed right-handers Juan Nicasio and Dan Altavilla on the 10-day disabled list, recalled infielder Daniel Vogelbach, and purchased the contract of right-hander Mike Morin from Triple-A Tacoma.

On the Yankees broadcast, Michael Kay points out that Giancarlo Stanton is still waiting for his signature Yankees moment. Two pitches later, he drills on 0-2 slider from Ryan Cook for a two-run, walk-off home run as the Yankees rally from a 5-0 deficit for their biggest comeback win of the year. Maybe Stanton is finally a True Yankees (c).

Jokes aside, Ichiro won't enter Home Run Derby

It started as a joke among Seattle's coaching staff, and even led to the Twitter hashtag #IchiForDC, but Ichiro Suzuki said Wednesday that he's not interested in entering next month's All-Star Home Run Derby.
