It looked as if the Boston red Sox were going to make a comeback, but that was not the case on Wednesday when they lost to the Oakland Athletics. The game ended 6-4 after some great hitting by Oakland set them out of reach for Boston.

The game came down to fielding and hitting. Playing against a team such as the Red Sox, no matter what state they are in, is always a challenge. One of the best teams in baseball did not get it’s reputation by losing games. Due to injuries that have crippled their abilities, they have been taking some serious losses recently.

Oakland is just another team that has stepped in and taken advantage of them, even though this was a tough game, they still dominated. A great home run from Matt Watson helped his team win on Wednesday. Incidentally, it was his MLB first ever. Oakland claims it’s third straight series with this victory against the Red Sox.

Taking the Red Sox at the plate, Gonzalez (9-6) pitched six innings for the win. He proved that no matter what, quality pitching prevails. Hammering the strike zone he allowed four runs and seven hits against a very formidable opponent.  Performances such as these are what set teams like the Athletics up in the season.

Consistency, a strong fundamental baseball game with no flashy ineffective plays landed the Athletics the win. Michael Wuertz had a perfect ninth for his second save. Starting off on a nice stretch there, the way things are lining up, he could have any more before the year is out.
