Brett Anderson struck out eight and outdueled usual Oakland nemesis John Lackey for his first victory of the season, and the Athletics beat Boston 5-0 on Tuesday night to snap the Red Sox’s three-game winning streak.

David DeJesus got Oakland on the board with a first-inning RBI groundout, then Hideki Matsui added a two-run double and Daric Barton and Kurt Suzuki each hit RBI singles in a four-run eighth. Anderson (1-1) didn’t even need all that support in an efficient 109-pitch outing in which he helped the A’s (9-8) move over .500 for first time this year.

Boston remains winless away from Fenway Park and was blanked for the second time this season after losing 1-0 at Cleveland on April 7.
