Clay Buchholz's lost 2014 went even more off the tracks thanks to a five-run fifth inning as the Angels beat the Red Sox 8-3 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

He retired nine of the first ten batters he faced but ran into all kinds of trouble in the fifth. Buchholz somehow got through the sixth inning, charged with six runs on sevens hits and two walks while striking out five. Two of those walks came in the Angels' 5-run fifth.

David Ortiz was the lone offensive bright spot for Boston with a four-for-four performance including his 30th home run of the season.
