Aaron Judge has home runs in consecutive road games for the first time this season.
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.
With his first appearance with the Mariners, David Phelps becomes the 32nd different pitcher used by the club this season, most in the Majors; matches the Mariners single-season club record (also: 2016).
The 32nd home run of the season for Aaron Judge cuts the Mariners lead to 4-3 in the 6th inning at Safeco Field. It's the 7th time this season that Judge has hit a home run in back-to-back games.
