Marlon Byrd added two RBI in the victory.

Clay Buchholz (3-1) earned the win despite yielding six runs on seven hits in a 6 2/3-inning effort.

Athletics starter Tommy Milone (3-2) was pounded for eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits before being yanked after 4 2/3 frames.

Former Red Sox player Josh Reddick cracked a three-run homer and Coco Crisp added two RBI for Oakland, which dropped the first of a three-game set at Fenway Park.
