SEATTLE, Wash. -- Boston's Daisuke Matsuzaka continued his masterful pitching away from Fenway Park, and J.D. Drew's first inning homer helped the Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Tuesday night.
After dropping five straight on the road, the Red Sox seem to have found a remedy against the lowly Mariners, who fell a season-worst 24 games under .500 with their fourth-straight loss. Matsuzaka only made Seattle's anemic offense look even more hapless.
Dice-K (11-1) held Seattle to just five hits and shut out Seattle into the eighth, improving to 5-0 with a 2.20 ERA in eight starts away from home.
