Lowes Road Improvement
Lowe didn't have a cake walk in Oakland last night, but he did pitch well enough for the Sox to beat the A's for the 7th time this season.
The four walks didn't help, but I tried not to give in and I tried to throw strikes," Lowe said. "This is a very good team. They do a lot of things, and they play extremely well here."
With the win Lowe improves to 14-10, his fifth straight decision, and the Sox have now won 25 of their last 30.
Every night we're patting somebody else on the back," Francona said. "I think that's how winning teams play. If somebody doesn't get a hit with one out, somebody else gets it with two outs. We're playing pretty consistent baseball right now."
Damon lead the game off with a homer, in his first start since missing four games due to a bruised pinky.
I couldn't even grip a bat a couple days ago, so this is a relief," Damon said.
