       BOSTON (AP) _ Chris Iannetta and Erick Aybar homered in the Angels’ nine-run fifth inning, and Albert Pujols also hit a home run on Friday night to lead Los Angeles to a 12-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

        Mike Trout had a pair of hits _ both in the fifth inning, when the Angels sent 13 batters to the plate and took an 11-3 lead. Boston loaded the bases in the seventh with nobody out and two runs already in, but Jose Alvarez struck out David Oritz and then got an inning-ending double play.

        Garrett Richards (4-2) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks, striking out one in six-plus innings.

        Rick Porcello (4-3) allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks, striking out four.
