Jackie Bradley, Jr. homered twice (both against lefties) in another Red Sox blowout of the hapless Oakland A's, 13-3. JBJ knocked in six of Boston's thirteen runs—going 3-5 and raising his average to .322. He is becoming a complete player—already an elite defender and now a legitimate offensive threat. Rick Porcello got the win—going 6 2/3 gritty innings—giving up three earned runs and striking out five. In addition to Bradley, The Carmine Hose got multiple hit nights from: Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Chris Young and Christian Vazquez. All together, Boston had a season-high 17 hits.
