Red Sox: Saltalamacchia hits 2 homers in 10-5 win over Angels

(AP) — David Ortiz hit a three-run home run and Jarrod Saltalamacchia connected twice, the first coming one pitch before Mike Carp homered Sunday, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-5.

Ryan Dempster (4-6) got his 2,000 career strikeout when he fanned Alberto Callaspo to open the sixth.

The Red Sox took two of three in the weekend series against the Angels and have won six of eight.

Los Angeles entered the weekend having won eight straight against the Red Sox after going 6-0 last season, but dropped the final two after winning the opener of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.

Albert Pujols and Callaspo each had solo homers for the Angels.
