BOSTON — Chris Woodward's bases-loaded popup in the ninth inning dropped behind a partially draw-in infield to score the go-ahead run and lift the Seattle Mariners to a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.

Russell Branyan drove in the other two runs for the Mariners.

Seattle capitalized on Takashi Saito's wildness for the winning rally. Saito (2-2) walked the bases loaded with one out before Woodward's popup fell behind first baseman Mark Kotsay and second baseman Dustin Pedroia's diving bid, allowing pinch-runner Wladimir Balentien to score from third base.

Jason Varitek hit a home run over the Green Monster after Rocco Baldelli walked to give the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the second inning.
