Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Jackie Bradley, Jr. belted one of five Boston home runs, including his tie-breaking solo shot in the fifth helping the Red Sox outslug the Seattle Mariners, 11-8, Tuesday in the second matchup of a four-game series at Safeco Field.

Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli each smacked a two-run homer, while David Ortiz and Shane Victorino added a solo blast apiece for the Red Sox, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Ortiz finished 4-for-5 to notch his 1,688th hit as a designated hitter, tying Harold Baines for the most hits by a DH in major league history.

Boston starter Allen Webster was shelled for seven runs on six hits over 2 1/3 frames, but five Red Sox relievers combined to hold the Mariners to one run the rest of the way, with Craig Breslow (3-2) earning the victory after tossing 2 1/3 scoreless frames.

Koji Uehara capped the stellar bullpen effort with a 1-2-3 ninth to secure his sixth save of the season.

Blake Beavan (0-2) was tagged with the loss after giving up a pair of runs over two innings of work in relief of starter Hisashi Iwakuma, who surrendered six runs on eight hits in just three innings.

Brad Miller collected three hits and four RBI, while Kendrys Morales went 3- for-5 with a pair of homers and three RBI for the Mariners, who had won two straight and five of seven coming into the contest.
