BOSTON (AP) – Mike Napoli hit two homers and drove in three runs, Steven Wright pitched six-plus solid innings and the Boston Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with an 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.

Xander Bogaerts had a two-run single and Mookie Betts two RBI singles for Boston, which had a shuffled batting order with Dustin Pedroia leading off and David Ortiz batting cleanup, moving from his customary third spot.

Kole Calhoun had a two-run double and Mike Trout, an RBI single for the Angels, who lost for only the fourth time in 11 games.

Wright (2-1) allowed two runs and four hits, striking two and walking just one. C.J. Wilson (2-3) threw a season-high 119 pitches over six innings, giving up four runs on seven hits, fanning six and walking three.
