Eduardo Rodriguez didn’t have his best stuff Sunday afternoon, but he did more than enough to put the Boston Red Sox in position to win at Safeco Field.
The left-hander battled through six innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out nine in Boston’s 9-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Rodriguez improved to 9-1 on the season and the Sox climbed to 13-1 in games the southpaw starts.
After the win, Rodriguez noted the importance of not losing focus on the mound, even when things might not be going your way.
