G123: Angels 5, Red Sox 3

Angels  - 001 220 000 - 5 11  0
Red Sox - 000 002 100 - 3  8  1
Aaron Cook (5-11-5-1-4, 85) allowed five consecutive singles - a couple of liners, a grounder, and two bleeders - in the fourth inning. He also gave up a two-run home run to Mark Trumbo in the fifth.

Boston got two runs back on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's 21st dong of the season. Scott Podsednik doubled and eventually scored on a wild pitch in the seventh. The Red Sox threatened in the seventh, but Mike Aviles grounded to second, stranding two baserunners.

Alex Speier, WEEI:
For the 39th time this year, a Sox starter allowed five or more runs. The team's record in such contests dropped to 7-32, with the Sox having lost each of their last 18 contests when a starter yielded a handful of runs.
