Wade Miley pitched into the eighth inning (7.1-6-2-1-6, 96), and Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara finished up. Uehara allowed a single and a double in the ninth, but closed out the victory.

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4, raising his June batting average to .524 (11-for-21); he scored two runs. ... Rusney Castillo and Brock Holt had two hits apiece.

Oakland's Pat Venditte - who throws both left-handed and right-handed - made his major league debut, pitching the seventh and eighth innings. Venditte became the first pitcher to record an out as both a lefty and a righty in the same inning since Greg Harris did it for Montreal in 1995.
