Surging A’s Crush Red Sox 20-2 in Oakland – Fenway Park 8-31-12

Ouch — what a way to end the tumultuous month of August, with a 20-2 loss to the A’s in Oakland. The A’s scored in all but 2 of the 8 innings that their hitters came to the plate, including a 9-run 7th.

Aaron Cook suffered his 8th loss of the season, as his ERA soared over 5 after he allowed 6 ER on 7 hits in just 2 2/3 innings.  Not good.  Craig Breslow and Mark Melancon each gave up 4 ER in the 7th inning.

The Red Sox fell 9 games under .500 with the loss and they are just 1 game ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays for last place in the AL East.
