Jackie Bradley Jr. extended his career-high hitting streak to 15 games with a two-run single in Boston's six-run fourth and added a grand slam two innings later, carrying the Red Sox over the struggling Oakland Athletics 14-7 on Monday night.

Brock Holt hit a two-run homer, and David Ortiz had three hits and two RBIs for Boston, which has won seven of its last 10 games.

Khris Davis hit his seventh homer and drove in two runs for Oakland, which has lost 12 of 16 and fell to 1-7 this month.

Josh Reddick's club-record streak of hits in eight consecutive at-bats was stopped when he grounded out his first time up.

Clay Buchholz (2-3) gave up four runs and six hits in five innings.

Oakland scored in each of the first three innings to open a 4-1 lead before the Red Sox charged ahead with their six-run inning.

Boston chased Sonny Gray (3-4) during an inning in which the Red Sox had seven hits, two of them doubles off the Green Monster by Ortiz, and sent 11 batters to the plate.

Travis Shaw's RBI double and Bradley Jr's single tied it, and Mookie Betts doubled in the go-ahead run. Dustin Pedroia's run-scoring single made it 6-4, and Ortiz capped the rally with an RBI double against Fernando Rodriguez.

Holt homered in Oakland's bullpen the next inning, and Bradley hit his slam over a short wall in deep right.

Gray gave up seven runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. He is 1-3 with a 9.61 ERA in his last four starts.

Davis' homer landed into the first row of Monster seats.
