Jerry McDonald has been with the Bay Area News Group for more than 30 years, with a heavy concentration of NFL football since the Raiders returned to Oakland in 1995. His all-time favorite athlete is a right-handed pitcher at Division III Linfield College in Oregon.

Left-hander Alex Wood gave up three earned runs in five innings for the A’s Tuesday night against the Boston Red Sox.OAKLAND — The Athletics played an errorless game, got two-run home runs from Shea Langeliers and JJ Bleday and an overpowering relief effort from Mason Miller but it wasn’t enough in a 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night at the Coliseum

The A’s fell to 1-5 before a crowd of 5,112. Boston, 4-2, plays a getaway day game against Wednesday. The A’s had made eight errors in their previous two games and a major league high 13 going in to the game. The A’s had a runner at third with no out in the 10th but couldn’t score off reliever Winckowski. Free runner Ryan Noda was sacrificed to third by Zach Gelof, with JJ Bleday walked intentionally. J.D. Davis then hit a comebacker that trapped Noda off third for the second out, with Seth Brown striking out to end the inning.

Boston tied it in the seventh on a run-scoring single to right by Story against Lucas Erceg. It came moments after McFarland had retired the dangerous Rafael Devers on a 4-6-3 double play that sent Jarren Duran to third. Pinch-hitter Masataka Yoshida doubled to right to put runners at second and third, Triston Casas was intentionally walked and Erceg retired Rafaela on a soft liner to short.

Boston reached Wood for an RBI double by Story in the first, a run-scoring single by Duran in the second and an RBI single by Reyes in the third. Wood walked two and struck out seven, giving up no runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
