BOSTON (AP) The struggling Los Angeles Angels jerseys just can’t catch any breaks.
Trailing by a run in the top of the ninth with a runner on first, the Angels jerseys got a clutch hit from cheap Daniel Nava jersey down the right field line. cheap Mike Trout jersey was easily going to score the tying run, but the ball took the most unfortunate of bounces, over the wall and out of play forcing Trout to stop at third.
The Angels jerseys challenged, saying a fan interfered while the ball was still in play, but after a brief video review the call on the field stood. Trout remained at third and the Boston Red Sox jerseys held on for a 5 4 win Friday night.
“I don’t know what they’re looking at in New York, but that ball is absolutely in the field of play when that fan touches it,” Angels jerseys manager Mike Scioscia said. “Absolutely. It’s a joke.”
The Angels jerseys battled back from a 5 0 deficit and had a pair of great chances to tie it following a rain delay of 1 hour, 35 minutes.
Los Angeles was still frustrated about the ninth after looking at video in the clubhouse.
“On the replays we all looked at, it looked like it was still in play,” Trout said. Cron hit a grand slam for the Angels jerseys, who lost their fourth straight and 10th in 11.
David Ortiz hit his 2,000th career hit with Boston on a solo homer in the fifth. It was his 522nd career home run, moving into sole possession of 19th place on baseball’s all time list and breaking a tie he held with a trio of Hall of Famers including Red Sox jerseys great Ted Williams.
cheap Mookie Betts jersey and Ortiz had three hits apiece for Boston.
cheap Craig Kimbrel jersey finished up for his 17th save. Knuckleballer cheap Steven Wright jersey (9 5) got the win despite struggling with his control when the rain got heavy in the sixth.
cheap Jhoulys Chacin jersey (2 5) allowed five runs on 12 hits in just 4 2/3 innings.
The Angels jerseys had the potential tying run on third in the eighth when cheap Johnny Giavotella jersey tripled to left center with one out. The Angels jerseys tried getting him home with a safety squeeze that reliever cheap Koji Uehara jersey foiled with a great defensive play. Uehara scooped up cheap Carlos Perez jersey’s bunt and flipped the ball with his glove to cheap Christian Vazquez jersey in time to tag Giavotella at the plate.
Ortiz hadn’t homered since tying Williams, Willie McCovey and Frank Thomas on June 17 against Seattle. Ortiz broke the tie with a line drive to right to put Boston up 3 0 in the fifth.
cheap Jackie Bradley Jr. jersey followed with a single and scored on a double by Holt, who scored on a single by Vazquez to put Boston up 5 0.
The rain started after Ortiz’s homer and was falling steadily by the top of the sixth, when Wright’s shutout bid unraveled quickly. The knuckleballer struggled in the weather and the Angels jerseys loaded the bases with nobody out for Cron, who drove a 3 2 pitch over the Green Monster.
That was all for Wright, who allowed four runs on eight hits, walked three and struck out three.
Cron drove a 3 2 pitch from Wright out to left for his seventh home run of the cheap baseball jerseys season. It was also the first career grand slam for the young first baseman, who took a big chunk out of the 5 0 lead Boston had built.
“Just looking for a pitch in the zone and I think I got it,” Cron said. “It’s cool. Any first in this league is awesome.”Angels jerseys: LHP cheap Andrew Heaney jersey (torn ulnar collateral ligament) underwent Tommy John surgery in Los Angeles, likely sidelining him until the 2018 season.
Red Sox jerseys: Holt was activated and start in left field, his first game since going on the concussion DL as of May 19. Holt had one of the defensive plays of the night in the fourth when he threw out Cron at second as he tried to stretch a line drive into a double.
