With their 4-2 win over the A's on Friday night, the Red Sox got their 58th win of 2013—setting a new team record for victories before the All-Star break. John Lackey delivered another solid performance—getting his seventh win by going seven strong innings and giving up two runs on just three hits. But it was Dustin Pedroia who stole the show tonight—both in the field (another stunning defensive play) and at the plate (game-winning RBIs in the eighth). Brock Holt started the scoring with a clutch two-out single in the second, scoring two runs.
