Angels 5, Red Sox 3
Vladimir Guerrero is congratulated after his homer in the second. (Christian Petersen/Getty)
Homers from Vladimir Guerrero and Torii Hunter gave the Angels an early lead, but Guerrero misplayed a fly ball in the seventh to allow the go-ahead run to come home. Casey Kotchman's two-run double and Francisco Rodriguez's 40th save got Guerrero off the hook.
