A Tough Weekend in L.A.

Boston had been rolling and traveled to Los Angeles to take on the Angels.  Unfortunately this was not really a great weekend for the Red Sox as they lost two of three and certainly should have won one of those two.

07/05:  Red Sox 6 (54-34) Angels 2
Felix Doubront has been improving greatly over the last few weeks.  He still starts off a little shaky but then he calms down.  David Ortiz had a pinch hit home run in the 8th inning.

FELIX DOUBRONT:  6.2 innings, 2 earned runs, 5 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts, Win.

07/06:  Angels 9 Red Sox 7 (54-35)
Boston lead 7-3 going into the ninth inning when, with two outs, the bullpen imploded, not being able to register the last out until the game was tied.  Alex Wilson and Koji Uehara take the blame on the pitching side, while Brandon Snyder threw the ball away to allow the last run to score.  After that, it was pretty clear the Angels would find a way to win and Josh Hamilton hit a two-run home run to wrap it up.

DANIEL NAVA:  4 for 6, 2 doubles, 2 runs, RBI.

07/07:  Angels 3 Red Sox 0 (54-36)
John Lackey pitched great again as his resurgence continues.  But the offense could not get anything going and Lackey took the tough-luck loss.

JOHN LACKEY:  7 innings, 2 earned runs, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts, Loss
