BOSTON, MA - MAY 15: Stephen Piscotty #25 of the Oakland Athletics reacts as he crosses home plate on his solo home run in the second inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on May 15, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. "It felt so good, and coming around third I was immediately thinking of my mom", said Piscotty.

Piscotty's third homer of the season was his only hit of the night and put the A's up 3-0.

Eduardo Rodriguez (3-1) took his first loss of the season after getting roughed up in the first few innings. The past six starts in particular have been very impressive for Mengden, posting a 2.62 with 26 strikeouts while allowing two runs or less in five of those six. In the ninth, A's closer Blake Treinen gave up his first run in May on an RBI groundout by Mookie Betts before earning his eighth save of the season.

The game was scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m., but didn't get under way until 8:52 p.m. because of heavy rain and lightning.

To make room for Piscotty and with Trevor Cahill (elbow) expected to return from the disabled list on Wednesday, the A's also optioned right-hander Kendall Graveman to Triple-A Nashville.

Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty has returned to the starting lineup with a bang after the club reinstated him from the bereavement list.
