BOSTON (AP) _ Providence native Chris Iannetta hit his second double of the game, a tiebreaking drive in the ninth inning off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara that sent the Los Angeles Angels over Boston 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Brennan Boesch had a ground-rule double with two outs off Uehara (5-3) for the Angels’ first hit since the fourth. Iannetta then lined a double off the left-field wall, just above the leap of Daniel Nava.
Joe Smith (5-1) got the win for the AL West leaders and Huston Street recorded his 34th save.
David Ortiz hit his 29th homer, a solo shot in the Boston first that increased his major league-leading total to 91 RBIs.
