    Red Sox with a pitchers' duel for 3-game sweep of Athletics

    Nick Pivetta joined with four relievers on an eight-hit shutout, Kenley Jansen pitched out of a ninth-inning jam and the visiting Boston Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a 1-0 victory Wednesday afternoon. Enmanuel Valdez lifted a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning for the game's only run, allowing Pivetta (1-1) to earn the win in a pitchers' duel with Oakland's Ross Stripling (0-2).

    In the top of the second, Tyler O'Neill hit his second homer of the series — a solo shot to left field off Bryce Miller — for a 1-0 Sox lead. Whitlock registered back-to-back strikeouts, yet Josh Rojas singled up the middle to tie the contest. “I think we just adjusted to what they were doing,” said Whitlock, who added that catcher Reese McGuire was the reason for the adjustment.
