Red Sox pitching gave up four home runs to the Oakland A's on Saturday and beat the Sox 8-3. That's three straight wins over Boston with a fourth and final game set for today.

Chad Pinder hit a 460-foot home run. Khris Davis, Jed Lowrie and Mark Canha hit the other long balls.

Meanwhile, Red Sox hitting managed just seven hits, one a home run by Hanley Ramirez.

Drew Pomeranz was pulled after just four innings. He had thrown 97 pitches. TV cameras showed a heated exchange between Pomeranz and manager John Farrell.

Perhaps help is on the way. David Price says he 'felt really good' after his first rehab start in Triple-A Pawtucket. He pitched only two innings but that was because of sitting for long periods of time in between taking the mound.

The 21-21 Sox could surely use some pitching help.
