Dan Haren, Angels Look To End Boston's Streak

The Angels will try for the seventh time this season to beat the Boston Red Sox (13-15), something they've done just once in the last 15 matchups over last season.  Last night the Angels (16-13) managed to out-hit Boston 13 to 11, but were outscored 9-5 in Jered Weaver's first loss of the season.

For the second time in two weeks the Angels will send Dan Haren to the mound against the sox's Jon Lester.  The last time out, Lester (3-1, 2.52 ERA) beat the Halos 4-3 in Anaheim as the left-hander pitched 6 scoreless innings.

Haren (4-1, 1.23 ERA) will try to get back on track after going winless in his last two starts.  Last Wednesday the right-hander went 7 innings against Oakland, giving up 1 unearned run on 3 hits, while striking out 5.
