BOSTON -- The Angels, who have struggled to score runs as much as the team they faced on Friday night, put a 12-5 thumping on the Red Sox in the opener of a three-game series at Fenway Park.
Most of the damage was done during a nine-run top of the fifth that lasted 39 minutes and included two errors by Boston.
