Boston was losing quickly when Nick Pivetta had trouble controlling the ball and allowed three points in the third round.

Despite having a roster of right-handed hitters in the lineup, the Red Sox struggled to get past left-handed J.P. Sears, scoring just one run over six innings thanks to a solo home run by Rob Refsnyder.

The game looked much different than last season, when Pivetta dominated the Athletics bullpen. Sears, meanwhile, built on five one-run innings against the Red Sox in 2023.

The Red Sox added a run in the seventh and loaded the bases before Rafael Devers grounded out to end the chance. Oakland singled against Josh Winckowski to keep Boston ahead.

Oakland earned its first win at Fenway Park as Boston lost the middle period, setting up a series-clinching game in the finals.

— Pivetta equaled his personal best thanks to eight consecutive strikeouts and finished with 10 points. He pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks.

— Refsnyder launched his fourth home run season. He traveled 394 feet above the Green Monster.

— Oakland’s Lawrence Butler scored a pair of runs in a multi-hit game. He is now 4-for-8 in the series with five RBIs.

The Red Sox and Athletics wrap up a three-game series on Thursday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. The game, as well as an hour of pregame coverage, can be watched on NESN.
