Angels Score In Ninth To Beat Red Sox

The Los Angeles Angels scored late off Koji Uehara to give them a 4-3 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

Chris Iannetta doubled home the game-winning run off Uehara in the top of the ninth to put the Halos ahead and Huston Street would close out the Sox in the bottom half of the inning to his club the victory.

It remains impressive to see David Ortiz continue to hit at such a high level as the veteran slugged his 29th homer of the season off Angels starter Jered Weaver in the first inning to give the Red Sox an early lead. Ortiz is well on his way to another 30 HR, 100 RBI season, but may see some more time off as the season comes to an end.

Unfortunately for Boston, Ortiz was the only hitter to record more than one hit and the offense couldn’t get going against LA and scratched two runs in the middle of the game to knot it at three. The Angels also struggled offensively against Allen Webster, who put together a quality start, allowing just three earned runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six innings of work.

Clay Buchholz will look to follow up his last good start with another one tonight at Fenway against Garrett Richards, who has been one of the most underrated pitchers in the league so far this year, so the Red Sox lineup has its work cut out for them tonight in Boston.
