A's snap 6-game losing streak

OAKLAND — Josh Reddick had four hits with a homer and three RBIs and Stephen Vogt also homered to help the A's snap a six-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.

Marcus Semien homered and Eric Sogard drove in three runs to help the A's snap their longest losing streak since 2012.

Drew Pomeranz (2-3) faced the minimum 15 batters through five innings and matched the longest outing of his career. He allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings to win for the first time since his opening start of the season, April 10 against Seattle.

Justin Masterson (2-2) failed to make it out of the third inning in his own personal house of horrors. He allowed six runs and six hits in 2 1-3 innings and fell to 0-6 with a 7.26 ERA in eight appearances at the Coliseum.
