Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Jarrod Parker catches the ball as he covers first base

Parker gets first win as A's beat Red Sox

BOSTON — Jarrod Parker scattered four hits over 6 2-3 innings and picked up his first Major League win as the Oakland Athletics stopped a three-game losing streak by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Jemile Weeks ended on 0-for-12 slump with a leadoff single and finished 2-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored for the A's.

Oakland scored the first five runs and provided plenty of security for Parker (1-0), who was making just his third start in the majors.

Parker struck out four, walked two and hit a batter before getting pulled in the seventh inning.

Boston starter Felix Doubront (1-1) wasn't nearly as effective.
