The Los Angeles Angels come into this one looking to take the series after winning game two by a final score of 6-3, evening up the series at one win apiece.

Retired Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz had the honor of having a street in Boston renamed in recognition of his impact on the Red Sox and the city of Boston on Thursday.

A Athletics 10, White Sox 2: Matt Olson hit his first two major league home runs, Jaycob Brugman and Franklin Barreto also launched their first career shots, and visiting Oakland routed Chicago. He walked three batters in his previous start, and four in both of his starts prior. It was the 13th straight start Porcello has gone at least six innings.

Boston's David Price (2-2) put up a quality start in a losing effort, allowing three runs (two earned), six hits and one walk with five strikeouts in six innings. Fister exercised the opt-out clause in his $1.75 million deal with the Angels earlier this week, but Boston scooped him up on release waivers. Manager John Farrell stated that Rutledge has been battling a head injury since Memorial Day, when the infielder attempted a diving catch in shallow centerfield against the Chicago White Sox. Farrell then got in a heated argument with Miller and was tossed for his first ejection of the season.

Maldonado singled home Kole Calhoun in the first to give LA a 1-0 lead. I don't have enough words to say today how proud I am, and how proud of a papa I feel today.

"It's really not acceptable you just have to be better than that", he said.

Offensively, the Angels chipped away at embattled David Price, who has become a lightning rod for criticism among Red Sox fans because of his injury issues and struggles on the mound.

In an unrelated move, the Red Sox claimed righthander Doug Fister off waivers; he's expected to start Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels.

The right-hander worked this offseason to get back to the dominant starter he was in 2014 when he posted a 2.41 ERA.

PERALTA SIGNS - The Red Sox have agreed to a minor league contract with infielder Jhonny Peralta, 10 days after he was released by the St. Louis Cardinals. LHP Eduardo Rodriguez, on the DL with a right knee subluxation, threw 68 pitches and could be in line for a rehab start with Portland this week.
