Video: A’s Avoid The Red Sox Broom With 3-2 Win

 Yoenis Cespedes #52 of the Oakland Athletics knocks in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning against the Boston Red Sox in the third inning at Fenway Park on May 4, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.

John Lackey has been probably the most consistent pitcher for the Boston Red Sox this season. The same could be said of Sonny Gray of the Oakland A’s.

As you might expect both pitchers did their job. And neither were involved in the decision as the A’s avoided a sweep by the Red Sox with a 3-2 extra innings win on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Both starters went six innings each, allowing two runs.

Grady Sizemore and A.J. Pierzynski along with Mike Carp all had two hits for the Red Sox. Sizemore knocked in one of the runs with a double while Pierzynski’s RBI came on a solo home run that tied the game at 2-2.
