BOSTON (AP) — Stephen Drew singled in the winning run in the 15th inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners and back into first place in the AL East on Wednesday night.

Dustin Pedroia drew a leadoff walk and took second on a groundout by David Ortiz. Mike Napoli was walked intentionally and Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out. Jonny Gomes then walked, loading the bases, and Drew hit a liner just inside the right-field line as Pedroia scored the decisive run.

Boston moved a half-game ahead of Tampa Bay in the division. The Rays lost 7-0 Wednesday night to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Drew Britton (1-0) pitched two innings for his first major league win. Lucas Luetge (0-2) took the loss.
