Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer If you have been staying up the past several games watch the Red Sox play on the West Coast, then kudos to you. Not only have the nights been long, but the games haven’t been great, especially if you’re a Sox fan watching your team get off to a 2-3 start to midway through this 10-game trip. Last night was much better, as the Boston Red Sox bats came alive in an 11-8 win over the Seattle Mariners. It looked as if the Ms would be on cruise control, jumping out to a 5-1 lead after two innings on starter Allen Webster, but the heart of the Red Sox (55-37) lineup provided the spark for the comeback. Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli each belted home runs, as did Jackie Bradley Jr. and Shane Victorino, en route to a 16-hit, 11-run night.

Left-hander Felix Doubront takes the mound for Boston...

Red Sox 'Knuckle-Down'; Beat M's In 10, 8-7
