SEATTLE (AP) — Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a tiebreaking homer, Shane Victorino slugged the last of Boston’s five long balls and the Red Sox snapped a three-game skid with an 11-8 win over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.

Boston rallied from an early 5-1 deficit, using two-run homers from Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli along with Bradley’s solo shot to come back against the Mariners. Pedroia and Napoli homered in the third inning and Bradley gave Boston the lead in the fifth. Victorino’s home run was part of a three-run eighth.

Seattle was just as potent early, but couldn’t solve the Red Sox bullpen. Alfredo Aceves, Craig Breslow and Andrew Bailey kept Seattle scoreless for 4 2-3 innings after starter Allen Webster was tagged for seven earned runs in 2 1-3 innings.
