Stephen Piscotty homered in his first at-bat after being reinstated from the bereavement list and saluted his late mother as he crossed home plate, helping lead the Oakland Athletics to a 5-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night in a game delayed nearly two hours because of weather.
His two-run homer was a tape-measure shot, 422 feet into the center field bleachers.
Pinch hitting, Joyce made it a three-run game again with his fifth homer of 2018 in the seventh, which barely evaded the grasp of Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts. Facing Trevor Cahill, who made his first start after returning from the disabled list, Martinez jumped ahead 2-1 and got an inside changeup that was hit squarely. The walk totals are pretty similar to what they were this time last year - 14 walks through 10 starts last year compared to 15 walks through 10 starts this year - but, it's been inconsistent.
Boston entered Wednesday having lost five of its last eight games. Chad Pinder drew a free pass and Marcus Semien sent a two-run blast onto Lansdowne Street to trim the Athletics' deficit to 3-2.
The addition of Martinez isn't the only reason the Red Sox are hitting more long balls this year.

Chris Sale couldn't quite harness his crackling fastball on this night, limited to five innings as his pitch count swelled to 102. Sale had good stuff, he just wasn't as sharp as he could be. It shouldn't have come as much of a surprise, as of the seven homers he's allowed this year five have been in the third time through the order. He struck out nine.
