Another game against the A's...another offensive onslaught by the Red Sox.

Boston cranked out 17 hits, including a pair of home runs by Jackie Bradley Jr., as they beat Oakland 13-3 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

Every Red Sox starter had at least one hit; JBJ, Xander Bogaerts, and Christian Vazquez each had three. Bradley's consecutive game hitting streak is up to seventeen, the longest current streak in the majors.

Rick Porcello (pictured) improved to 6-1 with the win. Once again, he pitched into the seventh inning going 6.2, allowing three runs on six hits and a pair of walks. He struck out five. He's put together fifteen consecutive starts where he's gone six or more innings.

Oakland scored in the top of the second on an RBI double by Yonder Alonso to take an early 1-0 lead. It lasted until JBJ homered with two on in the bottom of the inning to give Boston a lead it would never relinquish.

The Red Sox swept the three-game series scoring 40 runs in the process. They scored in every inning except the first and seventh.
