Red Sox Finally Find Their Bats in Battering the Angels

BOSTON (AP) – Dustin Pedroia's three-run homer capped Boston's

seven-run sixth inning and sparked the Red Sox to a 17-8 win over

the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.

Bill Hall and Adrian Beltre each hit their first homers in a Red

Sox uniform, both two-run shots, and Kevin Youkilis had a solo


Boston snapped a three-game losing streak after getting swept by

Baltimore over the weekend.

Clay Buchholz (3-2) gave up four runs on eight hits in 5 2-3

innings – his worst start of the season. It was the first time in

five starts he's given up more than three earned runs.

The Red Sox built a 5-0 lead with three runs in the second and

two in the third off Joe Saunders (1-5).
