April 28, 1993

It wasn’t a pleasant night in Oakland for the Red Sox. Actually, they hadn’t had a whole lot of fun for a week, at least not while they were at work.

Danny Darwin served up three home runs, then left via ejection. Lance Blankenship opened the fifth with a home run. Darwin proceeded to plunk Rickey Henderson.

Umpire Greg Kosc promptly ejected the Red Sox right-hander, whose record dropped to 0-4. It was Boston’s sixth straight loss, almost obliterating their 11-3 start to the season.

And it came against an A’s club that was tied for last place in the AL West.
