O'Sullivan Helps Red Sox Bounce back, Beat Angels, 10-5

Associated Press

BOSTON — Hanley Ramirez and Sandy Leon hit two-run doubles as Boston scored seven runs with two outs in the fifth inning, and the Red Sox rebounded from a drubbing by beating the Los Angeles Angels 10-5 Sunday.

A day after Boston lost 21-2 and allowed 22 hits, Sean O'Sullivan (2-0) held the Angels scoreless into the sixth and allowed two runs and four hits in five innings. Signed to a minor league contract in December, the 28-year-old righthander was recalled from Triple A before the game to make his third start with Boston.

He didn't allow a runner to reach third in the first five innings and was replaced by Matt Barnes after consecutive singles opening the sixth. Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols hit RBI doubles around Mike Trout's run-scoring single.

Ramirez had three hits and Leon drove in three runs for the Red Sox, who took two of three from Los Angeles.

Matt Shoemaker (3-9) allowed five runs and nine hits in 42/3 innings. Yunel Escobar had four hits and two RBIs for the Angels, who have lost 11 of 13.

C.J. Cron went hitless in four at-bats after going 6 for 6 with two homers and five RBIs in Saturday's 21-2 win.

David Ortiz's RBI double to the triangle in center pushed the Red Sox in front. Ramirez followed with his slicing hit to right before scoring on Jackie Bradley Jr.'s single for a 4-0 lead.

Jose Alvarez gave up Leon's double off the Green Monster. Leon scored when left fielder Jefry Marte overran the ball for an error on Marco Hernandez's single.
