Red Sox rainout first for Angels in 20 years

The rainout was the 11th in the stadium’s history and the first since June 16, 1995, when the Angels were scheduled to play the Chicago White Sox. He also entered the break 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in his last three overall after allowing a pair of solo homers in 6 1-3 innings of a 5-3 win over the New York Yankees on July 11. Calhoun is now 5-for-8 lifetime against the Red Sox’s righty, and he’s batting.


Few other roster machinations of note in that piece: Daniel Nava’s rehab assignment ends on Wednesday; Steven Wright and Brian Johnson appear in line to start Monday and Tuesday; and the Sox signed 27 of their 39 draft picks, including every one in the first 17 rounds. The Red Sox have now lost four of five games.The Angels exploited two mistakes to take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning without getting a hit against right-hander Rick Porcello.

It marked the third time this season that Rodriguez failed to get through the fifth inning and raised questions again about whether he was somehow tipping his pitches, a failing that the Baltimore Orioles took full advantage of in a game last month. Ironically, the Red Sox were also in town that day as well. Wilson through a scoreless tie.

Byrd, who has been mentioned in trade rumors, went 4-for-4 with his 15th homer of the season, a triple, double and two singles. 268 and. 267 and Ramirez has 19 home runs.

Watching all that food go from farm to not a table is awful for a number of reasons, which Oliver explained in depth.

Angels: RHP Garrett Richards (9-6) will pitch on eight days’ rest in his rematch with Porcello.

Rodriguez has a 3.59 ERA in nine starts in the majors this season, but he’s already thrown a combined 101 innings between the minors and majors.

Wade Miley’s dominant performance against the Los Angeles Angels was wasted on one fat pitch Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara threw to Mike Trout.

All-Star left-hander Hector Santiago survived a 31-pitch first inning and made it through five laborious innings, allowing one run and eight hits, walking one and equaling his career-high with 10 strikeouts to improve to 7-4 with a 2.30 earned-run average, third-best in the American League.

“We were in some tough spots, but we were able to pitch out of it and limit some damage”, Porcello said. Mike Trout is doing it all for the Angels hitting.


Pedroia, who returned from a hamstring strain on Friday, said he envisions playing both games in the doubleheader.
