Red Sox manager Farrell ejected after animated argument

Leadership often demands actions more often than words, as Dustin Pedroia demonstrated Sunday. I think it's an important stat, but it can be incredibly skewed. "He's one of the leaders on this team. Then he went through some stretches when his fastball was in sync and he threw some much better pitches". On Friday night against the Boston Red Sox, the former ace had control issues resulting in a feat Major League Baseball hadn't seen since 2009.

"We find a way to dig a little bit deeper before the 27th out is recorded and give credit to our guys that keep fighting and keep battling", said Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Buchholz earned the win with three hitless innings of relief.

Along with Pomeranz, trading for reliever Brad Ziegler has already paid dividends. "I just go out there and try to win the ballgame".

By now, they must have drawn a stark conclusion: As constituted, the Red Sox aren't good enough to win the World Series. I'm not necessarily having to nibble at the plate. "Three starts in, I know the numbers can look out of sync or not strong".

Boston's Dustin Pedroia, right, celebrates with Mookie Betts after hitting a three-run home run in the ninth inning to give the Red Sox a 4-3 lead over the Angels. Skaggs made his season debut on Tuesday night after two years of recuperation. But manager Mike Scioscia said Cron could return within two weeks. "He's working hard to get there. He used all of his pitches and he had good life on his fastball".

This will be Skaggs' first career game against the Red Sox.

Chapman was dealing for the Yanks to the tune of 20 saves, a 2.01 ERA and well over 12 strikeouts per nine innings, and his ability to consistently hit over 100 mph on the radar gun adds a different dimension to the Cubs.

The Angels needed one strike to complete the shutout when the Red Sox erupted for five runs in the top of the ninth against closer Huston Street (3-2). He was removed after giving up a home run to Jackie Bradley Jr. - his 16th - to lead off the sixth.

After three bad seasons in a row, Upton has experienced a career renaissance, boasting 16 home runs and 20 stolen bases at the time Toronto traded for him.

"We've been through a lot these past few days, the past week-plus, a lot of tough losses", said Bogaerts, who followed Pedroia's homer with a solo shot and pointed emphatically into the dugout as he rounded first base. "The right location I wanted to throw it in, just wasn't very sharp". Hopefully, it would come back closer to me. The Yankees also traded for a reliever, to replace Miller, getting Tyler Clippard from Arizona in exchange for pitcher Vincente Campos, who's been very good in the Yankees minor league system. But Ziegler induced Kole Calhoun to hit into a double play to ensure the victory. Santiago (10-4) allowed two runs, four hits, six walks and a wild pitch but finished with six strikeouts. Bogaerts singled before Bradley and Shaw walked. The only baserunner came as he walked Trout in the seventh.

Los Angeles had a chance to move ahead in the first inning but two unusual plays thwarted the club. However, Escobar fell awkwardly while trying to avoid the potential tag and failed to touch the plate.

The left-hander threw 38 pitches in the first inning, divided evenly between balls and strikes.

"He knows what he needs to do", Scioscia said. "When Hanigan dropped the ball, he was too far in and never got to the plate".

Boston again loaded the bases with two out in the third. Simmons followed by striking out on a pitch that eluded Hanigan. "He was on the verge (of being ejected)", Farrell said.

Lincecum has surrendered four or more runs in five of eight starts this season but the Angels will continue to give him a chance to fix what ails him as Scioscia said his spot in the rotation is safe. Kimbrel will rejoin the team during its series in Seattle later this week.

The Angels' designated hitter also tied Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig for ninth place in career extra-base hits with 1,190.
