BOSTON - J.D. Drew produced both runs Sunday in the Boston Red Sox' 2-1 decision over the Seattle Mariners.

His solo homer broke a 1-1 tie with no outs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The veteran right-fielder pushed the other run across the plate when he was hit by pitch from Seattle starting pitcher Erik Bedard with the bases loaded and two outs in the third.

Five players had one hit for the Red Sox, who have won five of their last six games overall and 15 of their last 16 at Fenway Park.

Winner Justin Masterson (3-0) gave up an earned run and just three hits in six innings. Closer Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 18th save this season.

Seattle's run scored on a fielder's choice groundout by Yuniesky Betancourt in the top of the second.

The Mariners managed five hits in the sixth loss in their last seven games.

The losing pitcher was reliever Sean Green (1-2).

Boston's Manny Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 13 games.
