It was his first at-bat off the bereavement list and third home run of the season, coming in the second inning to extend Oakland's lead to 3-0 at the time in an eventual 5-2 victory Tuesday night.

Is it dusty in here? As he crossed home plate, Piscotty put his hand on his heart and looked up at the sky.

Piscotty, who was traded from the Cardinals to the A's in December partly to be closer to his mom in Pleasanton, Calif., told manager Bob Melvin last Tuesday he was ready to get back in the lineup and feel the support of his teammates.

Piscotty is hitting.248 with two home runs and 13 RBIs in 34 games.

Eduardo Rodriguez (3-1) took his first loss of the season after getting roughed up in the first few innings.


Rookie Lou Trivino worked the seventh and eighth, allowing just a two-out double by Benintendi in the seventh and a two-out walk to Moreland in the eighth.

The game began late after rain and lightning caused a one hour, 40-minute delay, but that didn't seem to affect A's starter Daniel Mengden.

Chapman is starting to pick up the pace after going through a funk much of the past month.

Oakland has won four in a row over the Red Sox and has won the season series for the second year in a row.
