SEATTLE -- The Boston Red Sox found an easy cure for their road woes - a visit to the worst team in baseball.

Bartolo Colon showed flashes of his Cy Young days, shutting down Seattle for seven innings, and Dustin Pedroia's RBI ground-rule double scored the go-ahead run as the Red Sox scored four times in the eighth for a 5-3 win over the Mariners on Monday night.

David Ortiz added a long solo homer in the fourth and Manny Ramirez rattled the outfield wall with a run-scoring single as part of Boston's eighth inning rally, as the Red Sox snapped their 7-game road losing streak, their longest skid away from Fenway Park in nearly seven years.
