Red Sox Complete Double-Header Sweep Against A’s

After a long, wet, rain-delayed victory in the early game of Saturday’s double-header, the Sox and A’s were back at it battling each other along with the weather.

David Ortiz got the Red Sox on the board early hitting his 27th homerun of the year up into the monster seats in the 2nd inning. Saltalamacchia also drove in a run to give Boston a 3-0 lead heading into the 5th.

And then, the weather came. Mother-nature kept the grounds-crew on their toes rolling out the tarp once again.

The hour-long rain-delay led to Erik Bedard getting removed from the ball-game. He still does not have a win with the Red Sox, despite having not allowed more than four earned runs in any game he’s pitched for them so far. Saturday night, Bedard pitched four scoreless, allowing two hits and five strikeouts, but the rain shortened his outing, not allowing him to record the win.

Alfredo Aceves came in for the fifth and pitched three scoreless innings. Saltalamacchia doubled to right to drive in Lowrie in the 6th for an insurance run and his second RBI of the night. Aceves didn’t allow a hit and picked up the win to improve to 9-1 on the season.

The game ended as the Red Sox would like any other game, Bard handling the 8th, Papelbon closing the 9th, and the Sox taking the win.
