#RedSox Game Summary (June 24) Underpriced

#RedSox Game Summary (June 24) Underpriced. David Price has been working his way back to the superb form he showed last year, and today was another step along the way, but he’s not there yet. David went 6 innings, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and 1 walk with 5 punch outs against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The LAA runs came in the 1st, when they scored on a series of 3 singles, in the 4th, when Danny Espinosa reached on an error by Xander Bogaerts, and scored on an Eric Young, Jr. double, and in the 6th, when Andrelton Simmons doubled and scored on a sac fly. The Angels added 2 runs in the 7th when two hits, including an RBI double by Cameron Maybin off reliever Fernando Abad tallied one run, and then Cameron, who stole 3rd, scored on a balk. This incident also provided the most entertainment in an otherwise dreary game. It seemed that batter Kole Calhoun asked for time, and he and the umpire, Ryan Blakney, stepped off, so Abad stepped off the rubber, and was called for a balk. Umpire crew chief Bill Miller later said that he had reached the set position and stepped off before time was called, but it didn’t look like that on replay. John Farrell charged out there and got in Miller’s face, big time. They jawed at each other with their noses not a half inch apart, before Miller tossed Farrell, and then they really got into it. It was classic. The Angels tacked on one more run in the 9th when Eric Young, Jr. was hit by a pitch, reached 2nd after a walk, got to 3rd on a fielder’s choice, and scored on a Kole Calhoun single. The Sox runs came in the 2nd, when Mitch Moreland launched a solo homer off Angels starter JC Ramirez, and in the 9th, when Xander Bogaerts doubled, Andrew Benintendi singled, and the X-Man scored on a Hanley Ramirez ground rule double. After a walk loaded the bases, Christian Vazquez swung at a pitch that went wild for a strikeout, but because the runners were in motion, was able to reach first while Benintendi scored. So, with the score 6-3,, and the bases loaded, there was a chance to make it interesting. But, Chris Young whiffed to end the game. Albert Pujols also doubled for LAA, and Mookie Betts doubled for Boston. Los Angeles at Anaheim beat Boston, 6-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 41-33. Game 74/88.
