Lackey Loses No-Hit Bid In 8th, Boston Wins In 13th

View Comments

[photogallerylink id=35143 align=right]John Lackey came within four outs of a no-hitter, only to watch his Boston Red Sox blow a comfortable lead and cost him a win before beating the Seattle Mariners 8-6 in 13 innings Thursday night.

Seldom-used Eric Patterson doubled home two runs with two outs in the 13th and the Red Sox overcame Seattle’s five-run ninth against Manny Delcarmen and closer Jonathan Papelbon.

Josh Bard broke up Lackey’s bid for baseball’s fifth no-hitter this season on a clean single to right-center with two outs in the eighth. The last-place Mariners then rose up for five runs on three hits and two Boston errors to tie it in the ninth.
