4/27/2018 @ HOUSTON  
BOSTON: 2017: 93-69, first place, lost to Houston in ALDS.
MANAGER: Alex Cora (first season).
ADDITIONS: DH J.D. Martinez.
MANAGER John Farrell, RHP Doug Fister, OF Chris Young, RHP Addison Reed, OF Rajai Davis, LHP Henry Owens, LHP Fernando Abad.
OUTLOOK: The Red Sox won 93 games last year for the second straight season and claimed the franchise's first back-to-back AL East titles. But Farrell was fired after they failed to advance in the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. The key ' and really only ' addition is Martinez, who gives them someone to replace longtime slugger David Ortiz after finishing last in the AL in homers without Big Papi in 2017. The theory behind Boston keeping up with the reloaded New York Yankees goes something like this: A full season of a healthy Price will bolster a rotation that already has a quality ace in Sale, plus 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Porcello and All-Stars Pomeranz and Wright. The Red Sox also are staking their chances on the hope that Ramirez can be more like the player he was in 2016 (.286, 30, 111); that Pedroia will return quickly and be healthy and productive; that 20-year-old third baseman Devers will be able to stay up for a full season; and that Bradley won't have another second-half slump. The bullpen, anchored by Kimbrel, remains strong.
OAKLAND: 2017: 75-87, fifth place.
MANAGER: Bob Melvin (eighth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Stephen Piscotty, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Dustin Fowler, RHP Trevor Cahill, RHP Emilio Pagan, RHP Yusmeiro Petit, LHP Ryan Buchter.
SUBTRACTIONS: INF Ryon Healy, RHP Jesse Hahn, OF Jaycob Brugman.
OUTLOOK: The A's have followed up three straight playoff appearances with last-place finishes the past three seasons. There are signs of a potential turnaround but rebuilding will still take some time, especially in a division with the defending World Series champions and other possible contenders. The bullpen should be improved with the additions of Pagan, Petit and Buchter. The strength of the team is power. Davis leads the way with 85 homers the past two seasons, ranking second in the majors during that span to Giancarlo Stanton's 86. Olson made a big splash with 24 homers in 189 at-bats, a rate topped over a whole season only twice ' when Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds each set the single-season home run record. The A's added depth to the lineup this spring by signing Lucroy. One of the most intriguing players will be Fowler, who played one inning in the majors for the Yankees before blowing out his knee and then getting traded to Oakland for pitcher Sonny Gray. Fowler adds needed athleticism and defense in the outfield as the A's look to build a foundation for the future.
A's hope to build on four-game win streak vs. torrid Red Sox

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics take a step up in class when they attempt to improve upon their four-game winning streak Friday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox.

The A's will send staff ace Kendall Graveman (0-3, 9.87 ERA) in search of his first win of the season against Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who is expected to be activated off the disabled list in time to make his first start of 2018.

Oakland used a "Free Baseball" promotion to attract more fans to the ballpark, then thrilled them with a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox earlier this week. The A's scored at least eight runs in all three wins of the fan-friendly series.

Graveman got eight runs of support in his last start, but they weren't enough as he gave up five in the first four innings of a 10-8 loss at Seattle on Saturday.

The 27-year-old has allowed at least four runs in no more than five innings in each of his four starts.

Graveman held Boston to two runs in six innings without getting a decision in a 3-2 win last May when the A's took three of four from the Red Sox in Oakland. He's 0-0 with a 1.86 ERA in four games, including three starts, against Boston in his career, compiling a 1.46 ERA in two home starts.

This time around, Graveman will be seeing a Red Sox team that has been the best in baseball over the first three weeks of the season.

Boston completed a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels with an 8-2 thumping Thursday night, getting a strong pitching performance from Eduardo Rodriguez and Mookie Betts' sixth home run of the season.

In running their winning streak to seven games, the Red Sox dominated the Angels in the series, winning 10-1, 9-0 and 8-2.

Now it's off to Oakland, before they'll conclude a nine-game trip with three at Toronto.

Pomeranz began the season on the disabled list because of a flexor strain in his left forearm. Last year's 17-game winner made two injury-rehab starts in the minors earlier this month to stamp himself ready to face big-league hitters.

"I'm ready to go. I feel good," he proclaimed this week. "It was a very minor thing in the first place. I've felt good this whole time."

The 29-year-old went 10-10 in two seasons with the A's in 2014-15 before getting traded to the San Diego Padres, for whom he made the 2016 All-Star Game.

He's since faced the A's twice, both times last season as a starter for the Red Sox, going 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA.

The game features two of the hottest hitters in the majors.

Oakland's Jed Lowrie had five hits, including two homers, and seven RBIs in the three-game sweep of the White Sox. He enters the series tied with Betts and two others for the American League lead in home runs with six, while leading the league by himself in hits with 28 and RBIs with 21.

The Red Sox, meanwhile, rode seven hits, including two doubles and a homer, from newcomer J.D. Martinez in the last two games of their sweep in Los Angeles.
