Woeful BoSox Beat O's To Break 7-Game Skid

BALTIMORE -- The Boston Red Sox have ended a seven-game losing streak by beating Mike Mussina and the Baltimore Orioles 10-7 for their third win of the season.


Mo Vaughn and Mike Stanley homered Thursday for the Red Sox, whose 2-12 start was the worst in franchise history. Only two other Boston teams have opened the season 3-12, the last in 1932.


The Red Sox tagged Mussina (3-1) for six runs -- five earned -- and 10 hits in six innings.


Brady Anderson and Rafael Palmeiro homered for the Orioles, who had won seven of eight. Baltimore's 11-3 record is still the best in the majors.


Former Oriole Jamie Moyer (2-1) got the victory despite allowing four runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.


Mariners 11, Tigers 3. In Seattle, Alex Rodriguez hit his first career grand slam and the Seattle Mariners (12-4) tied a team record with their eighth straight win, defeating the Detroit Tigers.


Edgar Martinez and Jay Buhner hit consecutive home runs as the Mariners matched eight-game winning streaks of 1985 and 1991.


Chris Bosio (2-0) pitched five innings for the win. Tigers starter Clint Sodowsky (1-1) left before getting an out in Seattle's six-run second inning.


Marlins 5, Braves 3. In Atlanta, Charles Johnson hit a two-run homer and Gary Sheffield added a solo shot as the Florida Marlins snapped a four-game losing streak, beating Atlanta.


The Marlins, backed by Sheffield's homer in the first inning and Johnson's in the fourth, built a 5-0 lead over Tom Glavine and the Braves, whose three-game winning streak came to an end.


Glavine (1-3) struggled for the second game in a row. Chris Hammond (1-2) was the winner.
