Red Sox P Chris Sale seemingly mocks Cavaliers with 'Goon Squad' shirt

Such was the case for the Red Sox on Wednesday night against the Athletics, a club that has been a major thorn in their side on the young season.

His start against the A's was the flawless example, as he went just five innings and allowed two runs on two hits, while walking four and striking out nine.

J.D. Martinez (1-for-3) hit a two-run homer and Hanley Ramirez (1-for-4) had an RBI in the first inning, and Xander Bogaerts (1-for-4) added a three-run homer later in the game.

Up Next: The Red Sox look to salvage the three-game set on Thursday night.

Boston entered Wednesday having lost five of its last eight games.

Cisco Systems (CSCO) Expected to Post Quarterly Sales of $12.42 Billion

By now, we all know the story behind Drew Bledsoe and the "Scary Terry" shirts, but now we have Sale (and apparently other Red Sox players) with their own unique way of showing support.

The good: Chris Sale only gave up two hits over five innings of work and struck out nine. This comes less than one day after Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said the Celtics are "gooning the game up", per Martinez. It was Semien's fourth homer this season. Martinez made sure that wouldn't happen Wednesday night, as the cleanup hitter went deep in the bottom of the first, giving Chris Sale a comfortable 3-0 lead. Bogaerts has five long balls on the season.

Boston left-hander David Price (3-4, 4.89 ERA) will pitch tonight opposite the Baltimore Orioles. Betts came up limping after appearing to jam his right foot against the wall trying to make the catch, but he stayed in the game.

The shortstop had been struggling in May - his OPS was.606 coming into the game - but Bogaerts hit a three-run homer that was reminiscent of his hot start. Andrew Benintendi CF 3.
