Mariners beat Boston 5-3

Austin Jackson's bases-loaded double with two outs in the ninth inning keyed a five-run rally, and the Seattle Mariners sent the Boston Red Sox to their sixth straight loss, 5-3 on Friday night. Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (5-4) held a 3-0 lead with two outs and a runner on first before the Mariners broke loose. Seattle ended a nine-game losing streak at Fenway Park. Jackson's drive down the left-field line drove in two runs, Dustin Ackley followed with a two-run single to give the Mariners the lead and Robinson Cano added an RBI single. The Mariners had managed only two hits through the first eight innings. Dominic Leone (6-2) pitched one inning of relief for the victory and Fernando Rodney got his 37th save.

Lindquist To Start For No. 25 Huskies At Hawaii

Sophomore Jeff Lindquist will be the starting quarterback for No. 25 Washington when the Huskies open the season at Hawaii on Aug. 30. Washington coach Chris Petersen announced the decision after practice on Friday. Lindquist and redshirt freshman Troy Williams had been competing for the starting job after expected starter Cyler Miles was suspended for the opener for his involvement in an off-field incident last February. Miles will be eligible to rejoin the team for its home opener on Sept. 6 against FCS power Eastern Washington. Petersen said Miles and Williams will be in competition for the starting job going forward. Lindquist has not thrown a pass in college, but has appeared in a couple of games. He was a prep standout at nearby Mercer Island High School. SEATTLE (AP) – August 23, 2014
