Piscotty returned to the A's lineup last Tuesday, just two days after his mother's passing, and singled in his first at-bat that night. Piscotty's mother, Gretchen, passed away May 7 after a battle with ALS.

Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty was activated off the bereavement list in time for Tuesday's game in Boston.

Is it dusty in here? After he crossed home plate, Piscotty trotted to the dugout, where teammates showered him with cheers and high fives.

"The hand over my heart, that's something my mom would do when she wasn't able to speak. I'm going to keep that with me". "It felt so good, and coming around third I was immediately thinking of my mom", said Piscotty.

Eduardo Rodriguez (3-1) took his first loss of the season after getting roughed up in the first few innings. Mengden then pitched around Mitch Moreland's leadoff double in the second, but the Red Sox scored an unearned run in the fourth after an error by Matt Chapman put J.D. Martinez at second; he eventually scored on a groundout by Moreland.

Benintendi's solo homer in the fifth pulled Boston back within 3-2, but the A's tacked on a pair of runs in the eighth.

The A's will look to sweep the Red Sox when they close out the three-game series Wednesday.
