Angels Shell Lackey, Shutout Red Sox
Angels split series with 11-0 win over Red Sox
BOSTON (AP) – Rookie Mark Trumbo hit his sixth homer of the
season and the Los Angeles Angels salvaged a series split at
Boston, racking up 18 hits while shutting out the Red Sox 11-0
Bobby Abreu drove in three runs for Los Angeles, which was 0-6
against Boston entering the four-game series.
After ending the skid in a rain-delayed 5-3 win in 13 innings
early Thursday, the Angels chased Boston starter John Lackey (2-4)
in the fifth after scoring eight runs on 10 hits.
Joel Pineiro (1-0) got his first win of the season, holding
Boston to three hits over 5 2/3 innings. Relievers Rich Thompson
and Francisco Rodriguez preserved the shutout as the Angels
prevented the Red Sox from getting a runner past second.
