Bridwell to start against Red Sox

Bridwell to start against Red Sox

A pitcher dreams of starts like this, his team giving him a big early lead before he even throws a pitch.

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun is hitting fourth on Sunday versus the Boston Red Sox. "The way he felt coming out of the Yankee game, body-wise, he felt a little more taxed than previous starts, so I thought it was timely".

Each time Chris Sale takes the mound, it's another glimpse into what is turning out to be a historic season.

After allowing the early runs, Angels starter JC Ramirez settled down by retiring 12 batters in a row at one point and earned the win.

Sale, who is 12-4 with a 2.48 ERA, was asked if this is the best season of his career.

Manager John Farrell admitted Pedroia is still working through knee soreness. "To see how consistent he's been with the strikeout totals is unique and certainly impressive". "He's an elite pitcher".

He needed just 96 pitches. "It's three different ones he can get strikeouts with".

Now, through 20 starts, Sale has 200 strikeouts.

"It's cool", Sale said. Those things for the offseason or maybe one day tell my grandkids.

Sale has won 11 of his last 13 decisions.

"The difference wasn't his stuff", Farrell said of Price.

Parker Bridwell (4-1) gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings.

The Angels avoided a shutout when Martin Maldonado hit a solo home run off reliever Kyle Martin in the seventh.

He's just 2 for 15 with a double and a homer as the first baseman this season, but is the notion that he could be sharper while playing first still relevant?

"Jackie made a spectacular catch going up against the wall, as he's done so many times", Farrell said.

All Sale could do was be appreciative. It just seems like he's always raising the bar. "It's fun to watch".

An outing after his best start of the season, Saturday was one of Price's worst.

"All you can do is wear it", Nolasco said.

Angels: RHP Jesse Chavez (5-10, 4.88) has gone seven straight starts without recording a win and will try to end that futility when the Angels open a three-game series at the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday.

Angels: Right-hander Matt Shoemaker (forearm strain) threw lightly for the first time in two weeks.

"Those guys stayed on Ricky and used the whole field and bunched together a bunch of hits in the first inning", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

"As we get some of these quick turnarounds, there's days where he's got some needs physically". Well, four standout innings, anyway. Angels OF Shane Robinson remains day-to-day after suffering back spasms Friday night after a diving attempt for a fly ball.

It was a frustrating Saturday night for the Red Sox. Going into the game Price had allowed just two runs over his last 23 innings overall.

He's 4-10 with a 4.82 ERA in 19 starts. They scored five runs in the top of the first inning, a welcome departure from most of his starts. He last started a game on June 14.
