Martinez, Bogaerts power Red Sox past A's

Red Sox Drop Second Straight Game to A's 5-3 at Rainy Fenway

Piscotty was batting eighth and starting in right field for Tuesday night's game at Boston, which was delayed by rain.

His start against the A's was the ideal example, as he went just five innings and allowed two runs on two hits, while walking four and striking out nine.

Martinez launched a two-run shot to left center to highlight a three-run bottom of the first inning and Bogaerts crushed a three-run drive onto Lansdowne Street in the bottom of the sixth, as the Red Sox did all of their scoring in those two frames.

Through 10 games last year he had 101 strikeouts, this year he has 87 strikeouts.

The addition of Martinez isn't the only reason the Red Sox are hitting more long balls this year. Sale (4-1) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out nine over five innings.

Adams, an anesthesiologist, was nominated to the post in June by President Donald Trump and confirmed by Congress in August. Fellow Twitter users also flooded his tweet with positive comments, saying he was in the right place at the right time.

Craig Kimbrel gave up a run in the ninth, but still earned his 12th save. This comes less than one day after Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said the Celtics are "gooning the game up", per Martinez.

Oakland right fielder Stephen Piscotty dives into the stands to catch a fly ball hit by Boston's Mookie Betts during the sixth inning of Wednesday's game at Fenway Park. It was Semien's fourth homer this season. Martinez completed the early blitz of Oakland starter Trevor Cahill by hammering a 2-1 pitch out by the flagpole, his seventh homer in 14 games to make it 3-0. Xander Bogaerts SS 6.

Boston's pitchers were good enough, and the result was a much-needed 6-4 win.

The shortstop had been struggling in May - his OPS was.606 coming into the game - but Bogaerts hit a three-run homer that was reminiscent of his hot start. Oakland right-hander Andrew Triggs (3-1, 5.31) faces the Toronto Blue Jays tonight.
