SEATTLE (AP) – David Ortiz hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 for a split of the four-game series. Ryan Kalish, pinch-hitting for Brent Lillibridge, hit a one-out double off the right-center field wall off of Seattle reliever Brandon League in the 10th. Vicente Padilla pitched a scoreless ninth. Alfredo Aceves recorded his 19th save.

SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Mariners have placed right-hander Erasmo Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow flexor strain. Seattle called up reliever Josh Kinney from Triple-A Tacoma yesterday to take his spot. Ramirez felt tightness in his elbow during Saturday’s abbreviated start against the Boston Red Sox. He threw 2 2-3 innings before being replaced.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) – Camille Little scored five of her game-high 27 points in overtime and added nine rebounds and the Seattle Storm beat the Connecticut Sun 89-83 yesterday. It was the sixth win in seven games for the Storm. Tina Thompson had 20 points, seven rebounds and four blocks for Seattle and Sue Bird added 11 points, eight assists and five rebounds.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation says sprinter Jeneba Tarmoh is reconsidering her decision to take part in a runoff against training partner Allyson Felix tonight. The race is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. EDT and would be a boon for track, since it will be shown on NBC in conjunction with the network’s coverage of the swimming trials.
