Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Bartolo Colon tossed a three-hit shutout as the Oakland Athletics routed the Boston Red Sox, 13-0, on Tuesday in a rain- shortened middle test of a three-game set at Fenway Park.

Colon (3-0) fanned seven and walked just one over seven stellar innings before rain forced the game to be stopped before the start of the eighth.

Seth Smith stroked a two-run home run and finished with three RBI, while Coco Crisp, John Jaso, Brandon Moss and Josh Reddick each plated a pair of runs for the A's, who pounded out 13 hits overall as they halted a four-game slide.

Alfredo Aceves (1-1) was tagged for eight runs -- seven earned -- on seven hits and four walks over 3 1/3 frames to absorb the loss, Boston's third in its last four games.
