Langston wins his 9th game as Angels defeat Red Sox, 4-2


BOSTON -- Wally Joyner lined a two-run double in a four-run fifth inning and Mark Langston earned his ninth victory as the California Angels avoided a four-game sweep by beating the Boston Red Sox, 4-2, last night.

Langston, now 9-2 after going 10-17 last season, held the Red Sox hitless for for four innings, gave up two runs in the fifth and left after allowing six hits in seven innings. Mark Eichhorn took over to start the eighth but was replaced after Wade Boggs' two-out single by Bryan Harvey, who got the last four outs for his 16th save as the Angels ended a season-high four-game losing streak.

Greg Harris (2-7) allowed seven hits, including five in the decisive fifth inning, and took the loss despite finishing with nine strikeouts, matching his career high last accomplished in 1982.
