Jeff Weaver's first game as a Mariner didn't go quite as planned, as he lasted just two innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits. Meanwhile, Seattle's hitters had no answer for Boston's Josh Beckett, who held them to one run over seven innings. In the ninth, Richie Sexson hit a two-run double.
In their 96th home opener, the Red Sox jumped all over Jeff Weaver, scoring seven runs in the first two frames -- including J.D. Drew's first Boston homer -- to back a stellar effort from Josh Beckett. In seven frames, he fanned eight and allowed just one run.
