Boston Renames Street After David Ortiz

Boston Renames Street After David Ortiz”

"This city means a lot to me", Ortiz said.

Angels: Scioscia said RHP Matt Shoemaker, on the 10-day DL with right forearm tightness, was examined and received "a clean bill of health and resumed throwing", but would "most likely not" make a start when his turn comes up Friday. "I was going to do his thing (pointing his hands in the air) but I forgot".

After the game, manager John Farrell was asked about that particular situation.

He had allowing at least four runs in three of his previous four starts, which was giving some reason to wonder if the too-good-to-be-true story might be coming to an end.

"He's been dealing with that", Farrell said.

Alex Meyer (3-4) allowed five runs and five hits in 3⅓ innings.

The Angels scored three runs, two earned off Boston's David Price in six innings of work.

Farrell got in an animated argument with Miller and poked his chest, leading Miller to give Farrell his first ejection of the season.

That would give LA a 2-1 lead.

TRAINER'S ROOM - Red Sox: INF Josh Rutledge was a pregame scratch with left hip soreness.

Pedroia has been out of the lineup all week after taking a pitch to the ribs on Sunday. 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.

"It's unacceptable", he said. Whether it was in 2013 after the marathon bombings or any time he went out and volunteered in the community, he was always a stand up guy with a giant smile on his face.

Manager Mike Scioscia said he thinks he was too amped up, but Meyer disagreed. I don't have enough words to say today how proud I am, and how proud of a papa I feel today. "Just less moving parts in a better position to repeat it". Ortiz's No. 34 will be retired in a ce.

In 2016 Logan Airport named the Gate 34C as David Ortiz's gate.

"You're not a friend, you're not a teammate, you're our family", Pedroia said.

Red Sox: RHP Doug Fister (0-0, 0.00) is slated to make his Red Sox debut after being claimed off the waivers from the Angels Friday.

The Red Sox drop to 41-33 on the season.

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

The Red Sox were rallying, and his pitch-count was climbing.

He's expected to play third base at AAA Pawtucket and will provide depth with Pablo Sandoval dealing with an inner ear infection. It was his 10th homer of the season. Los Angeles LHP Tyler Skaggs (right oblique muscle strain) made a rehab start in the Arizona League on Saturday. That ranks him 17th in Major League Baseball history.
