April 26, 1984 - Mariners Fend Off Boston

Game #230 - Seattle Mariners, 6 vs. Boston Red Sox, 4

Every time Seattle scored first, the Red Sox tied things up.  It started in the fourth and fifth, when Seattle plated their first two runs.  But Dwight Evans and Tony Armas responded with RBI singles to knot it 2-2.  In the sixth Ken Phelps busted a solo homer but backup catcher Gary Allenson tied things up when he brought home Ed Jurak.

The score was eventually 4-4 in the top of the eighth when Seattle torched reliever Bob Stanley for two runs.  Edwin Nunez got out of a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the inning and put Boston to bed for good in the ninth.
