Lackey is Sharp, Big Papi Goes Yard as the Sox Roll On
BOSTON (AP) – John Lackey pitched two-hit ball over seven
innings against his old team, David Ortiz hit a solo homer and the
Boston Red Sox sent the Los Angeles Angels to their sixth straight
loss, 3-1 Wednesday night.
It was Boston's third straight win over the Angels, who have
lost the first six games on a 10-game road trip. It's the first
time the Angels have opened May at 0-5 in team history.
Adrian Beltre homered and drove in two runs for the Red Sox.
Brandon Wood hit a solo homer off Lackey.
The Red Sox can complete the four-game sweep when Daisuke
Matsuzaka faces Scott Kazmir on Thursday night.
