Chris Iannetta's RBI double in the top of the ninth inning off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara lifted the Angels to a 4-3 win over Boston on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

David Ortiz gave the Sox a 1-0 lead in the first inning with his 29th home run of the season, an opposite field shot and the 460th of his career.

The Angels scored three in the top of the third off Boston starter Allen Webster (pictured) who ultimately went six innings allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out three.

The Red Sox clawed their way back with single runs in the fifth and sixth. Mike Napoli drove in one run with an RBI groundout; Brock Holt hit a sacrifice fly for the other Boston run.

Ortiz had two hits for the Sox who were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left a combined 16 runners on base.

Will Middlebrooks left the game in the fourth inning with a tight hamstring. He's listed as day-to-day.
