Boston Red Sox defeat LA Angels 6-0. Coming into the game Angels’ starter Jered Weaver (L, 11-8) had a lifetime 7.06 ERA in four games pitched at Fenway Park. Thanks to a grand slam in the fourth inning by Ryan Kalish, a solo homer by Darnell McDonald in the third inning and an RBI double by Victor Martinez in the fifth, Weaver’s ERA at Fenway ballooned to 7.76. Meanwhile Sox starter Clay Buchholz (W, 14-5) left the Angels punchless shutting out the Angels in his seven innings of five-hit ball. The Angels had a prime chance to put a dent into the deficit when they had the bases loaded with two outs in the eighth inning on reliever Felix Doubront, but Erick Aybar struck out swinging to end the threat. Torii Hunter made a spectacular grab in the second inning robbing Adrian Beltre at the Red Sox bullpen.
