Holy smokes: Angels beat Sox at Fenway, 5-3

The Red Sox' offense, apparently, has gone on summer vacation.

For the eighth time in the last 11 games, the Sox were limited to three runs or fewer as the team suffered its fifth loss in the last seven games, a 5-3 setback to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The Sox had some late inning chances but stranded three baserunners in the last three innings.

Starter Aaron Cook was rocked for all five Angels runs over the first five innings, allowing 11 hits along the way.

His own throwing error -- his second in as many games -- led to the first run in the third. Five straight singles in the fourth led to two more and Mark Trumbo hit a two-run blast over everything for one of the longest homers at Fenway this season.

Snapping a homerless streak that had lasted almost a month, Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his 21st of the season into the seats in right to put the Sox on the board in the sixth.

A Wall double by Scott Podsednik followed by a ground ball and a wild pitch by reliever Jordan Walden let to another run for the Sox in the seventh.
