Red Sox Frustrate Anaheim Starter, Still Lose Again, 5-2

It used to be that when the 2016 Carmine Hose scored in the first inning, they won. Not anymore. Last night, Boston scored twice in the first (one on the 6th lead-off HR by Mookie Betts), but fell 5-2 to the Angels. They even pushed the Anaheim starter to throw 119 pitches and six walks in just five innings—but to no avail (just ask the sportsbooks). Drew Pomeranz lost again and is now 0-2 with a 7.53 ERA with the Red Sox. Boston left a ridiculous eleven men on base—bigger than the Guam delegation at last week's Democratic National Convention. Sandy 'Babe' Leon did get two more hits and is hitting .391.
