Saunders stifles Sox
Angels lefty sharp
Joe Saunders was brilliant for the Angels, scattering six hits while walking two and striking out a season-high seven batters over 7 2/3 innings. Two first-inning runs off Red Sox starter Julian Tavarez, including an RBI single by Vladimir Gurrrero, were all Saunders would need.

Series at a glance:
Sox settle for split
Julian Tavarez, making a spot start, tossed six solid innings, allowing two first-inning runs in six innings, but the Sox offense could not solve Angels starter Joe Saunders. Tavarez gave up just two hits and retired the last 11 hitters he faced as the Sox split the four-game series.
