Quick turnaround for a day game after night game means rest for Dustin Pedroia, who is still dealing with knee soreness, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. Pedroia has 27 RBIs in his last 21 games and is expected back in the lineup Monday night in Seattle.

Angels 7, Red Sox 3: Staked to an early three-run lead, David Price couldn't make it hold up. After a run of seven strong starts, Price threw a dud, allowing four runs in the third inning and six overall in five innings. The big blow came on Andrelton Simmons' two-run homer that gave the Angels a 4-3 lead in the third inning. The Sox mustered six hits, four of which came in the first two innings. John Farrell was ejected in the fifth inning after arguing a called strikeout.

How's Isaiah Thomas spending his offseason? Devouring game film at midnight on a Friday in July, evidently. Thomas' wife, Kayla, playfully posted a video of Thomas watching late-night film on her Instagram in the early hours of Saturday morning.

While Red Sox are exploring outside-the-box options at 3B, they haven't considered Jose Bautista, who has played more than 3,000 innings at the position but only 11 since 2014. At age 36, it's unclear whether Bautista can still play third, but one AL talent evaluator said he definitely couldn't do it every day.

Chris Sale's reaction to Jackie Bradley Jr.'s latest highlight-reel catch in center field: "I literally looked at [third baseman] Brock [Holt] and I was like, what's wrong with that guy? It seems like he makes a great catch and it's like, all right, that's the best one. Then he makes another catch and it's like, OK, that's the best one. It seems like he's always raising the bar."

Red Sox 6, Angels 2: In his latest bit of dominance, Chris Sale also made history. Sale tossed six scoreless innings and struck out nine batters to reach 200 strikeouts for the season. He got to that mark in 141 1/3 innings, fewer than any AL pitcher ever. The Red Sox scored five runs in the first inning and cruised in the opener of a six-game West Coast trip.
