Struggling BoSox pound A's

Tim Wakefield threw a complete-game win and the struggling Boston Red Sox bats came alive with a six-run inning Wednesday, crushing the Oakland A's 8-2 to avoid a three-game sweep at Oakland Coliseum.

Boston took the series finale as -115 favorites, and the nine runs made it OVER the game's posted over/under (8.5).

J.D. Drew led the way with a three-run blast, and Mike Lowell belted out a two-run homer for the Red Sox.

Landon Powell and Matt Holliday drove in the runs for the A's. Brett Anderson allowed two runs over seven innings in a losing effort.
