Light allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits, including two homers, over 1.2 innings in Saturday night's 21-2 loss to the Angels. After the game, he was demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket, Brandon Chase of Mass Live reports.

Light had been pitching well in high-leverage situations at Triple-A Pawtucket, so there was a sense of anticipation after his call-up earlier this week. Could he evolve into a viable setup arm to take pressure of Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa? But Light got thrown in front of a speeding bus Saturday -- the Angels led 15-1 when he entered the game. No matter how many hits and runs he gave up, Light was going to give Boston as many outs as possible.
