G138: Red Sox 6, Angels 3

Bronson Arroyo: 8-8-3-0-2, 105 pitches. He was in some trouble in the first two innings, though it happened (both times) after he got the first two Angels out. Arroyo allowed five hits, an HBP and three runs to the first 11 batters; after that, he retired 19 of the 22 Angels he faced, allowing three scattered singles.

David Ortiz: His two-run, opposite-field single in the third inning -- right after he may have gone around on a check swing for stike three -- tied the game at 3-3. He now has 122 RBI. Ortiz also walked in the first and singled in the fifth.

Kevin Millar hit another home run, a solo shot in the second. ... Alex Cora walked and tripled, and scored two runs.

The Red Sox have won 23 of their last 26 games at Fenway Park.

Clement / Byrd at 7:00.

I thought the Angel's dugout was going to spontaneously combust after Ortiz' single after he went around (yup, he did)! But hey, they even out, mostly...

Also, if you're interested, I'm doing a Sox blog as well. I finally got up the nerve. Let's hope we'll both be blogging at the end of October!
