BOSTON -- Kole Calhoun leaped at the low right-field fence to take a three-run homer away from Brock Holt in the second inning. "Game-changer," Angels teammate Chris Iannetta said. "It was awesome." Seven innings later, Iannetta delivered the tiebreaker with an RBI double that sent Los Angeles over the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Tuesday night. Brennan Boesch had a ground-rule double with two outs off closer Koji Uehara (5-3) for the Angels first hit since the fourth. Iannetta then hit the ball off the end of his bat off the left-field wall, just above the leap of Daniel Nava. But Calhouns grab in front of his teams bullpen was the major topic in the Angels clubhouse. "We go from being potentially down three or four runs to having the opportunity to take the lead," Iannetta said. Down 1-0 on David Ortizs 29th homer in the first, the Angels went ahead with three runs in the third. "This games a lot about momentum swings," Calhoun said, "and thats a big one right there." Joe Smith (5-1) got the win for the AL West leaders and Huston Street recorded his 34th save. Boston rookie centre fielder Mookie Betts, a second baseman in the minors, also took away a potential home run when he ran down Josh Hamiltons drive in the first in deep right-centre field. "Every game played in centre field is going to be a positive experience for him, given that hes gone through a positional change," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. The Angels took a 3-1 lead with four consecutive hits, starting with a double by Iannetta. The next three hits all drove in runs -- a single by Calhoun, a triple by Mike Trout and a single by Albert Pujols. Pujols originally was ruled out for the second out of the inning on Will Middlebrooks throw after the third basemans diving backhand stop. The call was overturned on replay, but Trout would have scored anyway on his headfirst slide into home. Jered Weavers wildness led to Bostons next two runs that tied it at 3 after six innings. In the fifth, Dustin Pedroia singled, Ortiz walked and both advanced on a wild pitch. Pedroia scored on Mike Napolis groundout. Xander Bogaerts began the sixth with a walk, took third on a single by Christian Vazquez and scored on a sacrifice fly by Holt. TRAINERS ROOM Angels: LHP Joe Thatcher isnt expected to return from the disabled list as hoped by Friday for the start of a three-game series with Oakland. He has been sidelined since Aug. 3 with a sprained left ankle. Red Sox: Middlebrooks left the game in the fourth with right hamstring tightness. Kelly Johnson pinch-ran after Middlebrooks was hurt while beating out a grounder to shortstop for a single. ... C David Ross is expected to be activated Wednesday after going on the disabled list with right plantar fasciitis. UP NEXT Angels: RHP Garrett Richards (13-4, 2.53) pitches in the third game of the series Wednesday night. He won his last three games, including a complete-game shutout against the Los Angeles Dodgers and a 5-4 victory over the Red Sox. Red Sox: RHP Clay Buchholz (5-7, 5.79) has a 3.00 ERA in his last two starts after a 9.00 ERA in his previous four, a stretch that followed an 11-0 complete-game win over Houston. WISE WALK With a runner at second and two outs in the ninth, Street walked Ortiz intentionally then struck out Napoli. "Both guys are going to hit a mistake and Huston didnt make any," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Ortiz leads the majors with 91 RBIs. WEB GEM Red Sox rookie starter Allen Webster pitched six solid innings, retiring his last five batters and allowing runs in just one inning. Hes in the regular rotation after Boston traded four starters last month. "I feel pretty confident right now on the mound," he said. HAMILTON RETURNS Josh Hamilton went 0 for 3 and was hit by a pitch after sitting out two games following a 10-game stretch in which he went 5 for 38 with 18 strikeouts. He took extra work before the game with hitting coaches Don Baylor and Dave Hansen. "Hes going to have to figure it out," Scioscia said. "Hes not going to figure it out sitting."

Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent. Alvaro Morata Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Marco Asensio Jersey . (January 11, 2014) – Once again Kevin Martin proved why he is the all-time TSN skins leader, winning $11,500 in prize money and a spot in the Travelers All-Star Curling Skins Game presented by Pintys final following a semifinal victory over Brad Jacobs earlier this evening at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre in Banff, Alta.FALL RIVER, Mass. - Aaron Hernandez was once one of the New England Patriots biggest stars. A tight end who caught passes from Tom Brady and helped land his team a spot in the Super Bowl, he had a $40 million contract and fans willing to shell out $100 apiece for jerseys bearing his name and team number: 81.On Friday, he goes on trial for murder. Those jerseys — indeed anything with a Patriots or NFL logo or even football-related insignia — have been banned from the courthouse by the judge overseeing the trial, a reflection of the sensitivity of the case and the intense interest in it.Hernandez is accused of killing Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semiprofessional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee. Lloyd was found shot to death June 17, 2013, in an industrial park near Hernandezs home in North Attleborough. Also charged with murder are two Hernandez friends: Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace. Prosecutors havent said who pulled the trigger but said Hernandez orchestrated the killing. Ortiz and Wallace will be tried separately.More than 1,000 potential jurors are expected to fill out questionnaires Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Those answers will be read by prosecutors and Hernandezs defence team, who will tell the judge which jurors they hope to excuse. Those who remain in the pool will be questioned by the judge individually and out of the hearing of the media.Each side has 18 peremptory challenges, which allows them to exclude a juror for any reason. Otherwise, lawyers will need to give a valid reason for asking a judge to exclude a juror. The questioning will continue until 18 jurors have been chosen.Cameras arent allowed in the courthouse during jury selection but will be allowed once opening statements begin.J.W. Carney Jr., a Boston defence lawyer who represented crime boss James Whitey Bulger during his 2013 federal trial, says during jury selection, lawyers on both sides will want to listen to what a potential juror says and watcch their body language carefully.ddddddddddddIt can reflect whether the potential juror is being candid about difficult issues, he said. Most people would prefer to avoid jury duty. Others want to be selected when its a high-profile case. In both instances, they may give misleading answers to the court in order to accomplish their goals.Christopher Dearborn, an associate professor at Suffolk University Law School and former defence lawyer, says extensive news coverage of the case will make it more challenging to assemble an unbiased jury.If anybody says they have not heard about this case during the jury selection, they are lying, he said. If anybody says they havent formed an opinion about this case, they are lying.One of the defences goals during jury selection, Dearborn says, should be finding jurors who can still be objective, even if theyve heard about the case and perhaps have already formed an opinion about it. He said the same problems popped up in the Bulger trial and are happening now in the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Jury selection in the bombing case is underway in federal court in Boston.High-profile cases are the one area where its challenging to have a completely fair trial in our judicial system, he said. The reality is that not everybody is completely honest about what theyve read and what opinions theyve formed when theyre interviewed during the jury selection process.Of the 18 people selected as jurors, six will be alternates. Jurors will learn whos an alternate before they begin deliberations; that process is done through a random lottery by selecting numbers from a wooden basket.The trial, expected to last six to 10 weeks, will not be the end of Hernandezs legal troubles. He faces separate murder charges in Boston, where he is accused of killing two men after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on Hernandez at a nightclub. The trial date has not yet been set.___Marcelo contributed from Boston.
