LA Angels defeat Boston Red Sox 4-3. With the game tied 3-3, Howie Kendrick hit an RBI single in the top of the ninth to give the Halos a 4-3 lead. The question would remain whether the Angels would let a one run lead slip away in the bottom of the ninth. After Kevin Jepsen got Jason Bay to strike out to lead off the bottom of the ninth, closer Brian Fuentes was brought in to face David Ortiz. Contrary to Wednesday night's proceedings, Fuentes would strike Ortiz out. Although Fuentes would give up a single to Mike Lowell, he got pinch hitter Rocco Baldelli to pop up to salvage a game for the Angels.

Notable Notes

  • The AVP Crocs Tour Best of the Beach is in Las Vegas this weekend where it should be a scorcher. The Best of the Beach is an individual format where the athletes compete with various partners in a round robin format. After pool play the players with the highest record choose a partner to compete for the King/Queen of the Beach title. And thanks to the successful partnership between KTLA and AVP for the Manhattan Beach Open, KTLA will be broadcasting the finals live on Saturday at 7pm for the women and 8:30 pm for the men.
