The Halos have sole possession of first place for the first time since May 11, 2011.
“Mike Trout and Albert Pujols hit consecutive RBI doubles, and the Los Angeles Angels extended their AL West lead with a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox on Monday night.
With two runners on and none out in the ninth, Jepsen threw a well-executed changeup to Ortiz that moved off the plate and got Big Papi to swing and miss wildly.
‘I wanted to give him a pitch he thinks he can drive, but it fades out of the zone. In that situation, I’m going for the strikeout,’ Jepsen said. ‘Watching him, I’ve seen him come up a ton of times in that situation and tie it up.’

Jepsen then got Yoenis Cespedes to bounce into a run-scoring fielder’s choice before Mike Napoli lined to center, which closed out Jepsen’s first save since Sept. 16, 2012. It was the fifth win in six games for the Angels, who moved a half-game ahead of idle Oakland.”
