Angels outlast Red Sox in 12 innings in Game 3

Contest was a real drag

It took them five hours and 19 minutes and 16 more stranded baserunners, but the Orange County American League Baseball Representative Angels finally found a way to beat the Red Sox last night.

They hung around long enough to find a vulnerable member of the Sox bullpen, and it turned out to be Javier Lopez, the sixth Boston pitcher on this long evening and early morning of baseball. The Angels put together a simple combination of a Mike Napoli single, a Howie Kendrick sacrifice, and an Erick Aybar single to produce the winning run in a 5-4, 12-inning triumph that kept them breathing in this AL Division Series.
