The Red Sox beat the Mariners 5-0 late Friday night on the backs of the Red Sox bats and an outstanding outing from Aaron Cook.

Cook’s Recipe Shuts Out Mariners

Cook was startlingly efficient on Friday night, using just 81 pitches to toss a complete game shutout. Over his nine innings, Cook allowed just two hits and no walks.

He is now 2-1 with a 4.26 ERA this season. 

Red Sox Crush 4 Home Runs

In a scoreless tie in the fifth inning, the Red Sox clubbed three solo home runs, including back-to-back shots from Will Middlebrooks and Cody Ross. Daniel Nava pitched in a homer of his own in the inning.

Then, in the sixth inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a two-run shot to cap the scoring.

David Ortiz did not homer, and is sitting on 399 for his career.

Saturday

The Red Sox will go for their second straight win Saturday night against the Mariners with Josh Beckett back on the hill.
