ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Kole Calhoun ended Boston left-hander Wade Miley's bid for a no-hitter with a leadoff double in the seventh inning for the Los Angeles Angels.
The Red Sox left-hander retired his first 16 batters before walking Chris Iannetta with one out in the sixth while battling C.J. Wilson through a scoreless tie.
Miley struck out six, four on called third strikes, while throwing 84 pitches against an Angels lineup that scored 10 or more runs four times during their nine-game road trip leading into the break but were hitless in 27 previous at-bats at home with runners in scoring position.
Miley faced the Angels on May 24 at Fenway Park, taking a no-hitter into the fifth before giving up a two-out single by C.J. Cron after a walk to Iannetta that also ended a chance at a perfect game. He went eight innings in a 6-1 victory.
