Red Sox 6, Athletics 3

BOSTON — Jon Lester struck out a career-high 15 (including nine of his first 13 batters) and Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam for the Red Sox. His previous strikeout high was 13 on July 24, 2010, a 5-1 loss at Seattle. The only hit he allowed was Craig Gentry's leadoff bloop single in the third. The first three Boston batters reached on two walks and a single. After Mike Napoli struck out, Gomes hit the first pitch over the Green Monster for his fifth career slam.
