Sox lose stinker to Angels

Angels - 4
Red Sox - 2

W: Speier (1-2) L: C. Schilling (6-5) S: Rodriguez (28)

In a game where the Red Sox left 22 men on base, the umpiring didn't help. There were probably three instances where I could have said that the umpire had money on the Angels. Manny got ejected on an absolutely ridiculous argument. He was arguing balls on strikes but eventually headed back the dugout and the umpire followed him there and then tossed him, like he was waiting to do it. But I won't get into that. Curt Schilling pitched solid, striking out 5 over six innings. His only real mistake was the homer by Izturis. I would say that he's back and just needs another start or two to get back to his old form. Kevin Youkilis went 2 for 4 with a home run. Brandon Moss made his Red Sox debut and looked like a pretty scrappy hitter. He didn't get his first hit yet but in one of his at bats he fouled off a ton of pitches and nearly hit it out of the park, to the warning track. I wish we could take this game back, it just was a bad loss and a loss that didn't have to happen. The Red Sox play the Angels tonight at 10:05 PM EST. Tim Wakefield (13-9) is pitching.
