Angels 7, Red Sox 3: Frustrating night for David Price, offense

MILWAUKEE WI- JUNE 19 Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison plays the ball during a baseball game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates

It was a fastball, 96 miles per hour on the outer half of the plate, and Kole Calhoun didn't swing at it as much as he reached and flailed. It was the last of Ramirez's 102 pitches.

- Albert Pujols had three hits and Andrelton Simmons hit his 10th home run of the season and drove in three runs as the offensively challenged Los Angeles Angels broke out the bats in a 7-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night. Only three other pitchers - Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez - have reached 200 in 20 starts or fewer.

But Sale's dominance is even more historic.

And then turning it over to Sale, who continued his dominating season. The strikeout capability is certainly unique, " Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "He's an elite pitcher". He has a 3.32 ERA over his last six starts, but the Sox are just 2-4 in those games. Last year's American League Cy Young Award victor is now 4-12 on the season with a rough 4.60 ERA.

Hanley Ramirez was once again the Red Sox designated hitter Friday for the first time since Monday, but he won't be putting his first baseman's glove into storage just yet.

The Red Sox got off to another fast start after scoring five runs in the first inning on Friday. Last Saturday, for instance, he tossed 7⅔ scoreless innings against the New York Yankees and left with only a 1-0 edge.

Jackie Bradley Jr. made a tremendous, leaping catch as he flew into the center-field wall on a drive by Yunel Escobar to lead off the bottom of the first inning. "I'm not the biggest fan of looking into stuff like that. It seems like he's always raising the bar".

Last Sunday, the Hereford native scored a no decision against the Tampa Bay Ray, throwing 6.1 innings, allowing two runs with a career-high eight strikeouts.

The strength of the wind was most apparent to Kuchar on the par-three 12th, when he lined up his tee shot way left of the target. And much like Spieth, he kept his round together with crucial par saves early on the back nine when the wind was at its worse.

Price, fresh off arguably his best start of the season, struggled in a 7-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

"It just seems like when he makes a great catch, I say, 'That's the best one, '" Sale said. "We've got a long way to go - a long way to go and a lot of work to do".

"Anytime you make a comment about balls and strikes, that's probably what it's going to get you", Farrell said.

"I thought it was going to be a double, but it kept going", Simmons said of his homer.

Meantime, Sale just keeps piling up the Ks - and the zeroes.

Sale has been so good that he has left teammates almost speechless.

"I had a similar streak in the second half of 2013", he said.

"It's not just with one pitch". "Felt like after the flight out (to Anaheim), some conversations over the past couple of days, this is one we hope will get him turned or to deal with some soreness that's there". But to see how consistent he's been with strikeouts totals is unique and certainly impressive'.
