Chang pushes 4; Devers homers as Boston beats Anaheim

Yu Chang broke out of an 0-for-28 drought with a two-run home run, before driving another pair with a go-ahead single for the Boston Red Sox, who prevailed Saturday, June 9. 7 to the Los Angeles Angels.

Chang’s single came in the eighth after Los Angeles catcher Matt Thaiss got his second interference.

Rafael Devers hit his seventh home run, a two-run shot, while Rob Refsnyder drove in a pair for Boston.

For Los Angeles, Colombian Gio Urshela hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, while Mike Trout added three hits, including his 300th career double.

Trout, 31, became the fourth player in major league history to reach 300 doubles, 300 home runs and 200 steals at that age. He thus joined Willie Mays, Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez.

Thaiss committed the interference that allowed Boston to load the bases in the eighth inning off Ryan Tepera (1-1) before Chang hit his single to left field. Tepera walked Refsnyder with the bases loaded.

Ryan Brasier (1-0) got the win and Kenley Jansen got the final three outs for his fourth save of the season and 395th of his career.

For the Angels, Colombian Urshela went 5-2 with one run scored and five RBIs.

For the Red Sox, Mexican Alex Verdugo 4-1 with a run scored. The Dominicans Devers 5-1 with a run scored and two RBIs, Raimel Tapia without an official turn but with a run scored. Puerto Rican Kiké Hernández 3-1 with a run scored.
