The Boston Red Sox dropped the first two games of their three-game series with the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park, but Alex Cora’s club was able to snag the rubber match Wednesday night.
Behind Xander Bogaerts’ monster home run and Chris Sale’s five-inning start, the Red Sox beat the A’s 6-4 to improve to 2-4 this season against Oakland.
After the win, Cora discussed Sale’s outing, noting the left-hander got fastball heavy in his start. Cora also joked he’s happy to see the A’s leave Landsdowne Street after their hitters gave Boston’s staff fits in the series.
