Losing 12-8 in Boston, the Mariners establish a new team-worst losing streak with their 15th straight defeat. The Fenway contest features a milestone for Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield when catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia holds on to Mike Carp’s foul tip to end the sixth inning for the knuckleballer’s 2,000th strikeout, a mark accomplished only once previously in franchise history, by Roger Clemens.
