Angels Rough Up Morales, Beat Red Sox in Game 1

Mike Trout (nesn.com)

The Red Sox came up a bit short in Game 1, with the Angels winning 9-5. Sox pitcher Felix Doubront pitched an average game, going six innings striking out 4, giving up 3 earned runs on 6 hits.  Followed by Doubront was relief pitcher Franklin Morales who struggled giving up 4 earned runs on only 2 hits. Angels pitcher Tommy Hanson received the win going 5 innings giving up 7 hits while striking out 4.

The Sox bats played well, notching 14 hits, but were not able to get more runs. Outfielder/first baseman Mike Carp chipped in a solo home run and went 3 for 5 with Daniel Nava also going 3 for 5. Mike Carp has been terrific off the bench and has showed he can help out whenever possible.

A key factor to the Angels win was, to no surprise, Mike Trout. Questions entered into the season debating whether Trout would keep alive his tremendous rookie season and he has not shown much disappointment. The only negative seen with Trout is his defensive ability but his offense has not seemed to change. Trout went 3 for 5, notching 1 stolen base, coming up big in the first of win of the doubleheader.
