SEATTLE — Xander Bogaerts hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 Thursday night for their fourth straight win.

David Price (8-4) pitched seven innings of four-hit ball to earn his sixth victory over his past seven appearances. He gave up a run and struck out seven. Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth to lock down his 22nd save, pitching around two walks to open the inning by striking out Kyle Seager and getting Ryon Healy to ground into a double play..

The Red Sox got their major-league leading 48th win of the season and snapped Seattle’s four-game winning streak.

Bogaerts hit Felix Hernandez’s 2-2 fastball just over the fence in left-center field for a two-out solo shot to give the Red Sox a 2-1 lead. It was Bogaerts’ 10th home run of the season.

The Mariners tied it at 1-all in the bottom of the fifth on on Guillermo Heredia’s sacrifice fly to left field.

Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead on Jackie Bradley Jr.’s RBI double off Hernandez (6-6) in the second.
