JC Ramirez pitched six strong innings for the Halos on Saturday night at Fenway Park, as the Angels knocked off the Red Sox 6-3.
Ramirez allowed one run and four hits with five strikeouts. He improved his record to 7-5 on the season.
Martin Malonado gave the Angels a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the 1st, but Mitch Moreland tied the game at 1-1 with a solo homer in the bottom half of the inning.
Eric Young Jr. delivered an RBI double in the 4th to give the Angels the lead again. Luis Valbuena contributed a sac fly in the 6th, then Cameron Maybin doubled in Cliff Pennington in the 7th. Maybin would score on Fernando Abad’s balk.
Red Sox manager John Farrell was ejected by third-base umpire and crew chief Bill Miller for arguing Abad’s walk.
The Red Sox would get a pair of runs in the 9th off of Cam Bedrosian, but it wasn’t enough. Blake Parker came in to record the final out of the game for his 1st save of the season.
David Price (2-2) started for the Sox. He gave up three runs (two of them earned) on six hits. He struck out five and walked one while taking the loss.
The rubber game of the three-game set will be on Sunday afternoon at Fenway. Parker Bridwell (1-0, 3.07 ERA) gets the start for the Halos. Doug Fister makes his first start of the season for the Sox after getting waived by the Angels.
