Stephen Piscotty homered in his first at-bat after being reinstated from the bereavement list and saluted his late mother as he crossed home plate, helping lead the Oakland Athletics to a 5-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night in a game delayed nearly two hours because of weather.

Piscotty's third homer of the season was his only hit of the night and put the A's up 3-0.

Allowing the first two runners of the inning to reach, boring surrendered a three-run bomb to Xander Bogaerts that traveled over the green monster to give the Red Sox a commanding 6-2 lead and essentially end the game.

Andrew Benintendi homered for Boston and Mitch Moreland finished with a pair of doubles for the Red Sox. After a strong outing in NY against the Yankees, Rodriguez allowed three runs in five innings on six hits, no walks, and four strikeouts.

Eduardo Rodriguez took his first loss of the season to drop to 3-1.

After Sale departed the game after just five innings with 102 pitches, the A's combined for just three hits against against Red Sox relievers as they fell 6-4 in Wednesday's series finale. Both scored on a double by Chapman, who drove a pitch from Rodriguez over the head of Mookie Betts in right field.
