#RedSox Game Summary (September 14) Fister Fizzle

#RedSox Game Summary (September 13) Fister fizzle. Everyone is entitled to an off day now and then, but what a time to have one, against the third worst team in the American League. Oakland jumped all over Red Sox starter Doug Fister in the very first inning, when Marcus Semien led off with a single, and scored on a triple by our old friend, Jed Lowrie. After a RBI single by Khris Davis scored Lowrie, Matt Olson knocked a 2 run jack to right. Doug gave up another 2 runs in the 3rd when Matt Joyce singled and scored on a Lowrie double, and Lowrie scored on a fielder’s choice. Fister was done after 4. The A’s added one more for good measure in the 6th, when Fernando Abad hit Matt Olson, who was exchanged for Chad Pinder in a fielder’s choice. Pinder scored on a Bruce Maxwell double off Heath Hembree. Meanwhile, the Sox looked fairly anemic against the less than impressive Jharel Cotton (8-10, with a 5.81 ERA and 1.48 WHIP; not so good). They got one in the first when Dustin Pedroia singled, reached 3rd on an Andrew Benintendi double, and scored on a fielder’s choice. In the 3rd, Xander Bogaerts singled, and Benny Baseball drove him in with a double. They picked up one more in the 5th on a solo bomb by Jackie Bradley, Jr. Mitch Moreland also doubled in the game, but did not score. The boys had better step it up, because the Yankees seem determined to make noise this year, having beaten Tampa Bay 3-2 to cut their deficit to 3 games. Oakland beat Boston, 7-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 82-63. Game 145/17.
