The Athletics took a 1-0 lead on a homer by Matt Joyce in the top of the third. The Red Sox took the lead in the bottom of the inning on an infield RBI hit by Andrew Benintendi and an RBI single to right by Hanley Ramirez.

Manaea was the author of the first no-hitter thrown against the Red Sox since Chris Bosio at Seattle's Kingdome back on April 22, 1993.
