The Los Angeles Angels completed a four-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night at Fenway Park with a 2-0 win.
Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker took a no-hitter into the seventh inning — before Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks broke it up with a double — and earned his 12th win of the season.
Boston now has lost five games in a row and will welcome the Seattle Mariners to Fenway Park on Friday night for a three-game series. The Red Sox are expected to send Joe Kelly to the mound, while the Mariners likely will use ace Felix Hernandez.
