MLB: Boston 5, Seattle 0

BOSTON, May 15 (UPI) -- Josh Beckett and a pair of relievers teamed up for a four-hit shutout Tuesday and the Boston Red Sox blanked Seattle 5-0.

Beckett (3-4) broke a personal two-game losing streak, scattering four hits and striking out nine while yielding a pair of walks.

The Red Sox ace threw 60 of his 93 pitches for strikes while rebounding from a disastrous Thursday outing in which he lasted only 2 1/3 innings against Cleveland.

Rich Hill and Alfredo Aceves finished up with one hitless frame each for Boston, which notched its fifth straight win.

David Ortiz went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and Mike Aviles added a pair of RBI doubles for the Red Sox.

Seattle's Blake Beavan (1-4) turned in his fifth consecutive start without a win, giving up three runs on five hits in a four-inning effort.

The Mariners sustained their fifth loss in seven games.
