For a long stretch of the game Sunday it looked like the Oakland Athletics were going to steal a win at Fenway Park, but the Red Sox offense came alive late and scored three consecutive runs in order to take a 4-3 win over the A’s.
Adam Duvall got the bats going as he launched a solo home run over the Green Monster in the bottom of the sixth before Christian Arroyo knocked in the tying run that same inning.
Masataka Yoshida was the hero for the Sox after slamming a solo home run into the Monster seats in the bottom of the eighth to give Boston a 4-3 lead.
Kenley Jansen came on in the ninth to close out the game, his 19th save of the season and the Red Sox fifth straight win as they enter the All-Star break 48-43. They now sit just two games back from the final American League wild-card spot.
