Red Sox 12, Athletics 6

The streaking Red Sox won their season-high eighth straight game while a streaker of another sort briefly delayed their victory over Oakland.

A completely naked man ran onto the field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. The fan streaked from the third-base seats to right field, where he was apprehended by a half-dozen security officers as players on both teams laughed.
