Boston Red Sox

David Price allowed a three-run home run to Khris Davis in the eighth inning as the Oakland Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 4-1 to take two out of three games in their weekend series.

Taking a 1-1 tie into the bottom of the eighth, Price induced a groundout against Bruce Maxwell before allowing consecutive singles to Marcus Semien and Stephen Piscotty. After striking out Jed Lowrie, Davis stepped to the plate and made Price pay.

Price went 7.2 innings and allowed four runs on nine hits and one walk, striking out six. A’s starter Daniel Mengden out-dueled him with 6.1 innings of one-run ball, while closer Blake Treinen earned the win (1-1) with three strikeouts in 1.2 scoreless innings to close the game out.

Boston dropped to 17-4 on the season after losing consecutive games for the first time. A’s starter Sean Manaea pitched a no-hitter against the Red Sox on Saturday night.
