|Angels Rally to Sweep Boston in ALDS
|BOSTON (AP) -- Vladimir Guerrero and the Los Angeles Angels shrugged off their postseason failures and swept the Boston Red Sox out of the playoffs.
Guerrero hit a two-out, two-run single off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning and the Angels rallied past Boston 7-6 in Game 3 Sunday, advancing to the AL championship series for the first time since 2005.
Guerrero delivered the biggest hit of his All-Star career, capping a three-run comeback in the ninth and giving the Angels their first postseason sweep in franchise history.
