Angels 2B Howie Kendrick out with sore right knee

Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick has left Los Angeles’ game

against Boston in the third inning with a sore right knee.

Kendrick was replaced by pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo on

Thursday night.

The Angels didn’t immediately say when Kendrick had been hurt.

Kendrick flied out to center in the first inning, which means his

15-game hitting streak ends.

Callaspo singled after replacing Kendrick, driving in Albert

Pujols to push the Angels’ lead over the Red Sox to 4-1.
