Boston began the 8th inning with four hits but with a scoreless game, and couldn't produce any runs before Miley was pulled out at the bottom of the inning when he walked the leadoff hitter.
Junichi Tazawa took over and retired the three batters he faced. Angels' starter C.J. Wilson took the game until the 9th inning, when he was replaced by Joe Smith. Smith retired the side, and Koji Uehara replaced Tazawa in the bottom of the 9th. Koji retired the first two hitters he faced, but then surrendered a home run to Mike Trout to give the Angels the win.
8th time in #RedSox history they lost a game giving up 1 run on 2 or fewer hits. Last was 1998 vs. Mets.— Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) July 18, 2015
A few notes:
Dustin Pedroia was activated today.
Brian Johnson is scheduled to make his Major League debut on Monday.
Do you think Rick Porcello can carry the momentum from his last start? Has Miley redeemed himself from a pathetic beginning in the season?
