C.J. Cron Has Huge Night, as Angels Drop 21 on the Red Sox

Fans at Fenway Park could not have been thrilled by how they were forced to spend their Saturday night. The Red Sox gave up a season-high 21 runs to the Los Angeles Angels in a 19-run loss. The game saw Los Angeles put 30 men on the base paths, as they absolutely dominated the home team. This performance was led by an 11-run seventh inning. 

Albert Pujols knocked in five runs with two hits, including a two-run homer in the first. Meanwhile, Carlos Perez had a career day, driving in six by himself. 

It was, however, first baseman C.J. Cron who put up the best performance. Cron put up a hit in all six at-bats, including two homers. He drove in five runs and scored five runs by himself. It was the best performance of Cron's career and continues a recent hot streak that has seen him put up 13 hits, three homers and 11 RBI over the past five games. Cron remains a near must play in DFS contests until he shows any signs of slowing down.
