Ervin Santana, one of the mainstays of the Angels' injury-ravaged rotation, made his season debut after missing the first 32 games because of elbow pain. The right-hander, who pitched in his first All-Star game last season, allowed three runs and seven hits over five innings.
Santana struck out five, including Ortiz on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded to end the fourth after the Red Sox tied the score 3-all with a two-out RBI single by Jacoby Ellsbury.
Brad Penny was charged with four runs and seven hits over 6 1-3 innings. The Red Sox right-hander was replaced by Hideki Okajima with a 3-2 lead after giving up a one-out triple by Erick Aybar, who scored the tying run after Bay made a diving catch of Mathis' sacrifice fly in left field.
Notes: The Angels are 13-0 when Hunter has at least three RBIs. ... Boston's starting pitchers have an AL-worst 5.90 ERA.
