ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Dustin Pedroia came through with another big homer against Huston Street. He almost didnt have the chance.Pedroia hit a go-ahead, three-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning and Xander Bogaerts followed with another homer to lead the Boston Red Sox over the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 Sunday.Street (3-2) entered with a 3-0 lead, walked Jackie Bradley Jr. and allowed Aaron Hills single. After a pair of strikeouts, Mookie Betts singled in a run and Pedroia homered to center on a 1-0 slider as Mike Trout climbed the center-field fence in vain.But Pedroia wouldnt even have been up to bat in the ninth had Red Sox manager John Farrell not come out to help him argue a called third strike in the fourth inning. Angels starter Tyler Skaggs looped a curveball high and outside for strike three and Pedroia immediately argued the call with home plate umpire Gabe Morales. Knowing how short-tempered Pedroia is, Farrell came out to finish the argument with crew chief Joe West and was quickly ejected.I just said, `Im only 5-foot-7, Im going to need a trampoline to hit that ball, Pedroia said. He was really good and had a good curveball all day. He didnt need any help.Pedroia hit his second go-ahead homer run in the ninth inning or later. The other was a tiebreaking, two-run drive off Street in the 10th inning of a 13-11 win at Colorado on June 24, 2010.We didnt have much going until the final inning and a couple of big swings from Petey and Bogey to get us to that spot in the ninth, Farrell said. We found a way to dig a little deeper before the 27th out was recorded. A big inning -- much needed- particularly to salvage a split in the series and to keep pace with where we are in this race.Bogaerts fell behind 0-2 in the count, then homered on another slider from Street, who blew a save for the third time in 12 chances.The Pedroia pitch, it just wasnt very sharp, it just kind of rolled in there, Street said. The right location I wanted to throw it in, just wasnt very sharp. Then after the homer, I thought I had (Bogaerts) and I just made a mistake. ... Its a terrible day and Im frustrated by it. Only thing I can do is wake up tomorrow.On the two-year anniversary of tearing his ulnar collateral ligament, Skaggs made just his second appearance since returning from Tommy John surgery and was on track for the win after five 1/3 scoreless innings.Got to get the first batter out of the way, but other than that it was a great performance, Skaggs said. I think the curveball was the key for me today. I threw it early and I threw it often, I threw it for a strike, I bounced it when I wanted to. It was a huge pitch for me.Clay Buchholz (4-9) pitched three scoreless innings, and Brad Ziegler got three outs for his 20th save in 23 opportunities.Knuckleballer Steven Wright allowed his first four batters to reach but didnt allow a run thanks to two alert plays he made.Yunel Escobar tried to score from second on Trouts single but stumbled past the plate as left fielder Bryce Brentzs throw got away from catcher Ryan Hanigan.

The catcher then threw to the plate, where Wright tagged out Kole Calhoun.Wright took a ground ball from Trout off of his left forearm in the third but remained in the game. The Angels went ahead in the fifth on Trouts RBI single, Pujols run-scoring grounder and Jefry Martes run-scoring single.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: INF Cliff Pennington will be activated in time for Tuesdays series opener against the Oakland Athletics.
