BOSTON — The good news for the Angels is they don’t have to play the Boston Red Sox anymore this season.

The Angels lost 4-2 to the Red Sox on Thursday night, going winless in six games against Boston this season, and getting outscored 49-12 in the process.

It was just the fourth time in Angels history they were swept in a season series of at least six games.

By losing their sixth in a row overall, the Angels dropped back to .500, at 41-41, for the first time since they were 1-1.

In all five of the Angels’ other losses against the Red Sox, they got in a hole early because of a poor outing by their starting pitcher. This time, Jaime Barría at least reversed that trend.

Barría, the Angels’ 21-year-old rookie, acquitted himself well in his first career start against the imposing Boston lineup in the crucible of Fenway Park.

Barría did not allow a run for the first four innings, becoming the first Angels starter to pitch even three straight scoreless innings in six games against Boston this year.

The Angels got him a lead on Andrelton Simmons’ homer in the fourth. It marked the first time since last Friday that the Angels had a lead.

Barría allowed the Red Sox to tie it on a Rafael Devers homer in the fifth. He also gave up a line drive off the Green Monster by Christian Vazquez, who was thrown out when he overslid second base.

Although the Red Sox had started to hit Barría, and he was about to face the heart of the Boston order for the third time, Manager Mike Scioscia sent him back out for the sixth with 91 pitches. With one out, he walked J.D. Martinez.

Scioscia then summoned lefty José Álvarez, who gave up a double off the center field wall to Mitch Moreland. With first base open, Scioscia intentionally walked right-handed Xander Bogaerts to load the bases for the left-handed Brock Holt.

Álvarez walked Holt, pushing home the go-ahead run.

The Red Sox got a couple insurance runs on Jackie Bradley Jr.’s homer against Noé Ramírez in the seventh.

The Angels had a chance at a rally in the eighth, scoring on a run on an Albert Pujols single. Simmons then lined out to right field and David Fletcher hit a line drive that Andrew Benintendi caught with a leap at the fence, robbing the Angels of a run and an extra-base hit.
