ANAHEIM, CALIF. (AP) - Bobby Abreu hit a go-ahead two-run single and Vladimir Guerrero hit his first home run of the season, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a testy 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox 5-3 on Sunday.

Dustin Moseley (1-0) was charged with three runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings and struck out three in the finale of a tragic and somber season-opening homestand for the two-time defending AL West champions.

The two benches cleared in the first inning after the Angels took exception when Red Sox ace Josh Beckett threw a pitch over Abreu’s head just as time was being called by plate umpire Paul Schreiber in the first inning.

Beckett (1-1) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings, striking out five and walking two.
