Red Sox (13-6) 9, Athletics (12-8) 6.
W: Doubront (2-0), L: Griffin (2-1), SV: Bailey (4)
This one was all offense. Middlebrooks hit a three run home run, hopefully this breaks him out of his slump. Napoli continues his hot streak hitting a grand slam in the fifth to give the Sox a six run lead. Doubront had a mixed bag, striking out eight and walking five. Mortensen struggled to find command and gave up three runs to make it a save situation. Tazawa got some key outs in the eighth and gave way to Bailey who picked up his fourth save.
