BOSTON--Shohei Ohtani hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning and the Los Angeles Angels rallied past the Boston Red Sox 6-5 Sunday, ending a four-game losing streak.
Matt Barnes (1-1) retired the first two batters in the ninth before giving up a bloop single to Mike Trout.
Ohtani followed with his 12th homer, tying for the major league lead, a drive tucked just inside the Pesky Pole in right field. It was Ohtani’s second homer of the series and stopped Boston’s three-game winning streak.
Raisel Iglesias (2-2) pitched a scoreless eighth and Mike Mayers got his second save.
