Boston Red Sox Fall To The Los Angeles Angels After Manager John Farrell Was Ejected From The Game
The Boston Red Sox almost climbed back into Saturday nights game against the Los Angeles Angels, but they fell well short in the ninth.
Boston lost to the Angels to a final score of 6-3. The score is not nearly as bad as it could have been. Entering the bottom of the ninth Boston was trailing 6-1. With the bases juiced and two-outs Chris Young struck out to end the game. Starter David Price was serviceable for the Red Sox.
Abad worked .2 innings and in that time he gave up 2 earned runs. Barnes on the other hand gave up one earned run in the top of the ninth inning.
Despite the Red Sox bullpen giving up 3 earned runs, the real culprit in this loss was the Red Sox offense.
The offense recorded just 6 hits on the night and only had 2 RBIs. No Boston Red Sox hitter recorded a multi-hit game, but Mitch Moreland hit his 10th homerun of the year. Funny enough of the 6 hits by Boston 4 of them were for extra bases.
The most interesting thing from this loss was watching Red Sox manager John Farell go off on umpire Bill Miller.

The two actually have history together with Miller ejecting Farrell two other times prior to Saturdays ejection. Farrell was ejected by Miller last year in Kansas City, and in 2012 with the Blue Jays. Farrell was ejected for arguing the balk call that plated a Angels runner.
