Quotes, notes and stars from the Red Sox' 14-7 win over the Oakland A's:
* "It's similar in the aspect that I'm hitting the ball hard, I'm comfortable going the other way and pulling the ball if need be.'' - Jackie Bradley Jr. comparing his current hot stretch with his month-long streak last August.
* "Nobody likes to give up runs in the first inning, especially at home when they're hitting first. But the guys have done a good job my last two times out coming back and putting some runs on the board.'' - Clay Buchholz, who gave up two runs in the first last start and two runs Monday night.
* "I didn't really know what was going on. I thought I got traded or something.'' - Clay Buchholz, after being lifted after five innings and just 87 pitches.
* "He's taking fastballs over the middle the opposite way and pulling breaking balls and that's a good place for a hitter.'' - John Farrell on Bradley.
* In the first five weeks of the season, Brock Holt already has more homers this year than he did in all of last year.
* Travis Shaw compiled his 10th three-hit game of his career in 97 games. That's the best mark for a Red Sox player since Nomar Garciaparra had 12 three-hit games in his first 100 games.
* David Ortiz passed Luis Gonzalez to move into 15th place on the all-time doubles list with 598.
* Jackie Bradley Jr.'s homer -- a grand slam -- was his third homer in the last five games.
