ANAHEIM, CA - OCTOBER 09:  Starting pitcher Josh Beckett #19 of the Boston Red Sox on the mound against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Game Two of the ALDS during the 2009 MLB Playoffs at Angel Stadium on October 9, 2009 in Anaheim, California.  (Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images)

It's not what they were hoping for, but the Boston Red Sox find themselves down two games to none against the American League West Champions, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, in the American League Division Series.

The Angels have outscored their opponent 9-1 in the series, as the Sox bats have been in MIA mode. Jacoby Ellsbury is the only member to score after he hit a triple, and was driven in by Victor Martinez in Game Two.
The series is now back at Fenway Park where Boston is hoping for some home magic.
Clay Buchholz is on the mound, while familiar Red Sox foe Scott Kazmir gets the call for the Angels.
Kazmir was claimed off waivers as the Tampa Bay Rays were trying to dump salary, as it was dwindling away in the standings. 
It should be an interesting match-up.
American League Division Series Games 1-2
Record: 0-2
Runs scored: 1
