Angels 5, Red Sox 0
The Angels earned their second playoff win over the Sox in 11 tries this decade. (Getty Images)
John Lackey didn't need a lot of help, but he was given a huge boost on Torii Hunter's homer as the Angels tossed aside the Red Sox in the Division Series opener. Lackey, 0-3 in his playoff career vs. Boston, stymied the Sox over seven frames.
