Red Sox - 001 000 000 - 1 8 1 Angels - 000 000 002 - 2 10 0This one - with two Angels runs scoring on Hanley Ramirez's throwing error on a possible game-ending (and Boston-game-winning) double play grounder - sounded like a real punch in the gut.
David Price (8-7-0-1-6, 109) threw eight shutout innings before Brad Ziegler took over in the ninth. The Angels loaded the bases with one out. Daniel Nava grounded a ball to Ramirez at first. His throw home sailed over the catcher's head and the tying and winning runs scored easily.
Eight of the nine Red Sox batters had a single (Jackie Bradley was hitless). David Ortiz also walked twice.
