Angels - 010 000 002 - 3 9 0 Red Sox - 000 002 14x - 7 12 1The Boston bats finally got to Haren in the sixth, as Jacoby Ellsbury doubled with one out and Adrian Gonzalez (tied game 1-1), David Ortiz and Jed Lowrie (gave Sox 2-1 lead) all singled.
Carl Crawford singled in the seventh and sprinted around to score on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's double off the Wall in left-center. Gonzalez began the eighth with a home run into the Angels bullpen off Haren, then Ortiz followed with a shot down the right field line on reliever Hisanori Takahashi's second pitch. Marco Scutaro added a two-run dong to left-center later in the inning.
Lester (7-6-1-1-11, 93) fell behind 1-0 on Mark Trumbo's home run in the second, but he outlasted Haren, and struck out 10+ batters for the 15th time in his career. Lester escaped a small jam in the first, when LAA had a man at third with one out. The Angels had runners at first and second with no outs in the fourth, but Erick Aybar lined to Dustin Pedroia, who doubled Vernon Wells off first with a throw to Gonzalez.
Daniel Bard got three grounders to second in the eighth, and after Jonathan Papelbon allowed two singles, a double, and a line drive sac fly in the ninth, he shut the door.
Ellsbury's hitting streak is now at 12 games, and Gonzalez's streak is at 10. Lowrie, Scutaro, and Crawford each had two hits; Crawford also walked and stole a base.Dan Haren / Jon Lester
