BOSTON (AP) - David Ortiz finished the best April of his career with a pair of solo
homers, Mike Aviles hit a three-run shot and the Boston Red Sox beat
the Oakland Athletics 11-6 Monday night.
Darnell McDonald had a
two-run homer and Marlon Byrd drove in a pair of runs to support a
decent start by Clay Buchholz, who held Oakland to one run until he gave
up five in his last inning.
Ortiz hit .405 in April with six homers and 20 RBIs. He hit .543 in Fenway Park (19 for 35).
It was Boston's seventh win in eight games, coming off a 6-1 road trip.
Former Red Sox outfielder Josh Reddick hit a three-run homer for Oakland, which dropped its third straight.
