Jonathan Papelbon has not been a sure thing for the Boston Red Sox this season.
Papelbon gave up three runs in the top of the ninth and the Oakland Athletics collected 21 hits to come-from-behind to beat the Red Sox last night.
Boston scored three runs in the fifth inning but couldn’t hold onto the lead. Adam Kennedy led the A’s offense going 5-for-7 on the night with three RBI.
