Boston Red Sox defeat LA Angels 7-5. With a 2-2 tie going into the fifth inning, Alberto Callaspo hit his first homer as an Angel - a three-run dinger that gave the Angels the 5-2 lead. However that wasn’t enough to give the Angels the win. Adrian Beltre belted a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning off of starter Scott Kazmir to pull the Sox to within one, but it was a meltdown by reliever Kevin Jepsen (L, 2-3)in the seventh inning that did in the Angels. Jepsen made a wild pitch during JD Drew’s at-bat allowed Victor Martinez to score to tie the game, and hit Daniel Nava with the bases loaded to give the Red Sox the 6-5 lead and former Angels’ starter John Lackey (W, 11-7) the win for the Sox. The Sox added a run in the eighth. The Angels are now 0-9 against Boston this season.
