BOSTON (AP) - Adam Kennedy homered on the first pitch of the game and the Oakland Athletics again outslugged Boston Wednesday night, winning 8-6 one day after beating the Red Sox with a 21-hit attack.
Brett Anderson (6-8) was staked to a 5-0 lead before even taking the mound and won at Fenway Park for the second time in 23 days. He beat the Red Sox 6-0 with a two-hitter July 6.
Anderson had only one bad inning on Wednesday when he gave up a three-run homer in the first to Mike Lowell, who had five RBIs. He allowed just two singles in his other five innings.
