What the sports betting experts predict is that the Red Sox will take this one in close fashion and get to 21 wins over .500. The Red Sox end up falling to the Oakland A’s, 3-2 in 11 innings. Brandon Workman had a stellar start but unfortunately Bartolo Colon matched his start and the A’s were able to pull it out with a Josh Donaldson RBI bloop single in the 11th inning.
Ryan Cook pitched 2 innings and got the win. Jonny Gomes was ejected from the game after he struck out in the 9th. The Red Sox have not won a series in Oakland since 2006 and have continuously struggled to take any series from the A’s.
The high point was the well pitched game by Brandon Workman. He worked 6.1 innings, allowing 2 hits, 2 earned runs, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Breslow and Uehara allowed no runs in their relief.
