    Red Sox go on offensive early in downing Angels

    Masataka Yoshida and Triston Casas each drove in two runs as the Boston Red Sox used an early offensive surge to take down the visiting Los Angeles Angels 7-2 on Saturday afternoon. The Red Sox totaled 11 hits in the game, scoring six of their seven runs against Angels starter Griffin Canning (0-2) across the first two innings. Yoshida, Wilyer Abreu and Reese McGuire were all 2-for-4, while Casas contributed his third home run of the season to Boston's offense.
