Trevor Story hit a grand slam over the left field wall at Fenway Park — most affectionately known as the Green Monster — and into the hands of former Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes, a member of Boston’s 2013 World Series championship team, who was seated atop the Monster.
Story connected on a thigh-high 1-2 slider off Robbie Ray (4-4), driving it into the first row of seats to give Boston a 4-0 lead in the third inning. Gomes moved a few steps to his right and caught Story’s slam against his body, high-fiving the person next to him with a big smile.
Jackie Bradley Jr. added a three-run shot for the Red Sox, who won for the seventh time in 10 games following a season-high five-game losing streak.
Abraham Toro hit a two-run homer for the Mariners, who have dropped four of five.
