White Sox Vs. Angels: Chicago's AL Central Lead Slimmer After 4-2 Loss

After a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, the Chicago White Sox have now lost four straight games and lead the Detroit Tigers by only a half game in the AL Central standings.

The Angels scored all four of their runs in the first inning against starter Jose Quintana (6-5, 3.62 ERA), who took the loss after surrendering four earned runs in five innings. Albert Pujols hit a double in the first inning that scored Mike Trout, then Torii Hunter followed with an RBI-single and Mark Trumbo drove in two runs with a single.

The White Sox got on the board in the second on a home run by Paul Konerko, then scored in the seventh on an RBI-groundout by Dewayne Wise.

Dan Haren (12-11, 4.35 ERA) picked up a win, giving up two earned runs in six innings. Ernesto Frieri picked up his 20th save.

The Tigers, in second place in the AL Central, beat the Minnesota Twins Saturday. They play a double-header against the Twins on Sunday.
