The Red Sox were swept in their four-game series in Anaheim, losing by scores of 1-0, 3-0, 11-1 and 7-3. Boston's four total runs were its fewest in a series of four (or more games) since July 1965, when the Twins allowed four runs to the Red Sox over a four-game set at Metropolitan Stadium, with pitchers Dave Boswell, Jim Perry, Mudcat Grant and Jim Kaat starting for Minnesota in those four wins.

"It's bad, bro," Ortiz said. "I don't think I ever remember coming in here and losing a whole series like this, every game."

Nothing wrong with Ortiz's recall: In the 55-season history of the Angels' franchise, the Sox had never been beaten here in four straight.
