Kalish's Slam Lifts Sox Over Angels (68-52)
Last night the Red Sox beat the Angels to improve to 8-0 against the Angels this season. Ryan Kalish (right) hit his first major league grand slam to right center field in the 4th inning, making him now .300/2/8 as he has been impressive in the major leagues. Darnell McDonald also hit a home run, in fact he crushed it so far it shattered the back window of a car! He is now .265/8/30 as we didn't expect him to be very good this year but he has definitely surprised. Dustin Pedroia made his grand return to Fenway last night, unfortunately he went 0-4 with a strikeout. Tonight, John Lackey (10-7/4.54/99) and Scott Kazmir (8-10/6.36/66). It's always fun to see someone play against their old team, especially in Lackey's case.
