AT THE PLATE: Facing a knuckleball pitcher for the second time in three games, the Angels looked as if they might knock out Red Sox right-hander Steven Wright early when Erick Aybar led off the game with a single, Albert Pujols doubled and Kole Calhoun hit a two-run double off the wall in left-center field. But they managed only one more hit against Wright, who left with one out in the seventh. Aybar doubled, and Mike Trout hit a run-scoring single against Junichi Tazawa in the eighth. Second baseman Johnny Giavotella was hitless in four at-bats and is three for 32 in his last 10 games, his average falling from .284 to .246. Matt Joyce has reached base in seven of his last nine games.
