KEY MOMENT: Seven outs away from a no-hitter, Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker hung a 2-and-2 split-fingered fastball to Will Middlebrooks, who lined a double to left for Boston’s only hit. “It was supposed be down, but it was belt-high, middle-in,” Shoemaker said. “He roped it down the line. Definitely an unfortunate pitch given the circumstances.” AT THE PLATE: Kole Calhoun singled in the first and scored on Josh Hamilton’s double to left. Erick Aybar doubled in the seventh, stole third and scored on Calhoun’s sacrifice fly. Aybar and Howie Kendrick each had three hits.
