ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout and Torii Hunter drove in runs in the ninth inning against beleaguered Boston closer Alfredo Aceves, and the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night.

Trout drove in the tying run with a one-out, broken-bat single, and Hunter ended it with a long sacrifice fly to center, scoring Alberto Callaspo.

The Angels appeared to be headed to their third straight loss until they jumped on Aceves (2-9) in his second inning of work following a three-game suspension for apparently arguing with manager Bobby Valentine.

It was Aceves’ eighth blown save. He had no problems in the eighth after relieving Clay Buchholz, who outpitched Angels ace Jered Weaver over the first seven innings.
