Red Sox 3, Mariners 0: Make it five wins in a row, the longest streak of the season for Boston. Eduardo Rodriguez tossed six scoreless innings to set the tone, while lights-out closer Craig Kimbrel put an exclamation point on a victory with another spotless ninth inning. Hanley Ramirez and Christian Vázquez had two hits apiece for the Red Sox.

Thursday's four longest home runs came from two games, both of them the final of a four-game series: Rockies vs. Phillies and Tigers vs. Astros.

It's only one day, but so far Koda Glover being named the Nats closer looks like lipstick on a pig. Despite taking a 2-0 lead into the sixth inning, Washington couldn't get the game to Glover, as the bullpen allowed three runs in the sixth and another in the seventh en route to a 4-2 series finale loss to the Mariners.

Anthony Rendon is locked in. The Nats 3B just wrapped one around the left field foul pole for his fourth homer in three games to give Washington a 1-0 lead over the Mariners in the fifth inning.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Nats is the fifth consecutive game in which the Mariners scored only one run. Before this current streak, Seattle had never scored one-or-fewer runs in five consecutive games, per the Elias Sports Bureau. The M's had two such four-game streaks, in June 1988 and July 2011.

The Mariners acquired OF Andrew Aplin from the Astros on Wednesday for a player to be named later or cash considerations and designated P Chris Heston for assignment. Seattle also recalled P Rob Whalen from Triple-A Tacoma and optioned P Emilio Pagan in a corresponding roster move.

The Nats bats found their groove again in a 10-1 bludgeoning of the Mariners that featured four homers, including a pair by Anthony Rendon and back-to-back jacks by Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper. After scoring double-digit runs six times in April, this was the very time in May that Washington has gone for 10-plus.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth just went back-to-back in the fourth to give the Nationals a 7-0 lead over the Mariners. Washington has also hit for the cycle in the inning.

Robinson Cano (quad) returns to the lineup for a star-crossed Seattle squad that's flirting with health history: Thanks to injuries, the Mariners have used 42 players already and are averaging one transaction every 15 hours since Opening Day.
