Kevin Youkilis led off the Boston second, and the count was 1-2 when Scioscia yelled something from the dugout and was ejected by third base umpire Ed Rapuano. Scioscia came back on the field to argue with Rapuano and West, and after play resumed, Youkilis and Drew hit back-to-back home runs -- the first of the season for both of them.
Beckett got upset with West in the fifth inning after he called a balk on an attempted pickoff toss to first base.
Chone Figgins then struck out, but Kendrick drove in Maicer Izturis from second with a single to extend the Angels lead to 4-2. After the inning, Beckett had a brief conversation with Schreiber while holding his glove over his face.
Notes: Boston CF Jacoby Ellsbury played his 179th straight regular-season game without an error, breaking Mike Greenwell's franchise record for outfielders. ... Ortiz was thrown out trying to steal second in the fourth. He is 10-for-14 stealing in his career and 6-for-8 with the Red Sox. ... Beckett has been charged with a balk only three times in 1,201 2-3 innings during his big league career. ... The Angels took two of three against the Red Sox, who haven't won a series at Anaheim since taking two of three in August 2006. ... Kendrick tripled in the seventh inning, right after Varitek threw out Figgins trying to steal second. ... Adenhart's teammates, who have had his jersey hanging next to the bat rack in the dugout, will continue that practice on the road and throughout the season to honor his memory. An empty locker also will be set aside during road games, while his locker in Angel Stadium will remain the way he left it on Wednesday.
