Dustin Pedroia led off the bottom of the 1st inning with a walk off Oakland starting pitcher Tommy Milone. Xander Bogaerts followed with a single and Ortiz walked to load the bases. One out later, Gomes hit his 3rd home run of the season and the team's 3rd grand slam in the last 4 games to give the Sox a 4-0 lead.
Ortiz hit his 6th home run of the season, and the 379th in a Red Sox uniform in the bottom of the 3rd; Ross went deep an inning later for his 2nd home run of 2014.
The 15 strikeouts are a career high for Lester who improved his record to 3-4. He struck out every Oakland batter at least once.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
