 Crosby's two-run double
Joe Kennedy held Boston to two runs on seven hits in seven innings, and the offense gave him just enough support. All Oakland's runs came in the fourth when Jack Cust hit an RBI double and Bobby Crosby drove in two more. With Alan Embree taking a rest, Santiago Casilla worked a four-out save.
