Red Sox Vs. Angels Final Score: Zach Stewart's Debut Results In 10-3 Disaster Loss

The Red Sox fell to the Los Angeles Angels 10-3 Wednesday night thanks to a disaster outing from Zach Stewart in his Red Sox debut.

Throwing flat junk in the strike zone, Zach Stewart essentially ended the game in the first inning-three at best. A massive Kendrys Morales homer to right capped off a four-run assault in the first inning, all coming before the first out.

The Red Sox managed to get a run back in the top of the second, with Scott Podsednik making some good of a pair of leadoff singles with a sacrifice fly. They would score two more in the later innings, but by then it was all over.

While Stewart almost managed a scoreless second, a two-out hit cost him a fifth run. Sent back out to preserve the haggard bullpen as much as possible, Stewart would have a third inning much like the fourth, with Chris Iannetta the man behind the climactic two-run shot this time.

And, frankly, that was about it. 9-1 is not a terribly surmountable deficit. The two runs in the fifth would at least make it a decent offensive night against C.J. Wilson, but that's cold comfort in the midst of a terrible blowout.
