Boston Red Sox Drop Series Finale Against Angels

Boston Red Sox Drop Series Finale Against The Los Angeles Angels As Team Continues To Sit In Mediocrity

The Boston Red Sox were defeated once again by a mediocre Los Angeles Angels team.

Sunday’s 4-2 loss means Boston lost the weekend series with the Angels 1-2 with their lone win coming on Friday night.

Doug Fister made his Boston Red Sox debut in a solid outing. Fister went 6 innings giving up 7 hits and 3 earned runs. Following up Fister John Farrell used Robby Scott, Heath Hembree, Joe Kelly, and Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel was the only reliever to give up a run for Boston.

The run allowed by Kimbrel is his 1st ER at Fenway Park this year and the team is now (29-2) when he plays in a game. Kimbrel entered the ninth inning with a 3-2 score so giving up a run wasn’t the nail in the Red Sox coffin. But it made a ninth inning comeback even more unlikely.

Boston’s offense had 8 basehits and both of their runs came via solo home runs. Mitch Moreland hit his 11th homerun in the 2nd, and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his 10th homerun in the 5th inning.

With the loss Boston’s record drops to 41-34 and are technically still in a tie for first place in the AL East. But with tiebreakers the New York Yankees are technically still in first. Next up for the Boston Red Sox is a four game set at home against the Minnesota Twins.

Chris Sale is on the mound for Monday’s game against Jose Berrios with a 7:10 p.m first pitch.
