Angels on top

The Angels don’t have either Casey Kotchman or Mark Teixiera in their lineup tonight. But no worries.

They’re up, 4-0, on Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox in the fourth.

Garrett Anderson has just hit a first-pitch fastball for a home run with a man aboard. The Angels scored two in the third when an error by Mike Lowell opened the flood gates on Rob Quinlan’s grounder. Jeff Mathis singled, Chone Figgins singled up the middle (it was originally scored an error by shortstop Alex Cora, but official scorer Mike Shalin made the change) scoring the first run. The Angels scored another run when Maicer Izturis walked with the bases loaded.

The Sox do not have a it against John Lackey.
