LA Angels defeat Boston Red Sox 7-2. Looking to avoid going winless against the Boston Red Sox for the first time in their history, Alberto Callaspo’s RBI double and Hideki Matsui’s three-run homer in the sixth inning off of Josh Beckett (L, 3-3) gave the Angels the 4-1 advantage. It help to left Angel starter Ervin Santana (W, 13-8) whose only mistake was a hanging changeup left over the middle of the plate to David Ortiz that landed deep in right field. Santana ended up going seven innings being charged with another run in the eighth inning after leaving the game with the bases loaded an no one out. And instead of collapsing like they did in Wednesday night’s game, the Angels actually scored three more off of Beckett and reliever Manny Delcarmen in the seventh inning. The 1-9 record the Angels had against the Red Sox this season ties for the worst in franchise history with the 1999 team.
