Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 4 White Sox 1

To paraphrase, Mick Jagger, Jered Weaver, it's just your nineteenth opponent breakdown...

Knowing that Oakland had already won and needing to stay 2.5 games behind a Wild Card spot, the Angels put together one inning of run-scoring to complement nine innings of good to great pitching and stayed close with a day off tomorrow and nine straight against familiar AL West opponents to finish of the regular season.

All of the Angels scoring took place in the sixth inning. Knotted a 0-0, Mike Trout walked with one away and reached third base on a Torii Hunter single. An Albert Pujols double drove them both in for his 100th and 101st RBI of the season. The next batter, Kendrys Morales, drove in Albert with his 22nd homerun of the year. That was all the Angels would need.

Jered Weaver loaded the bases with one out in the first inning but got out of it with a strikeout and a FC grounder. The ace was on cruise control from that point, faltering under a heavy pitch count in the seventh inning. Kevin Jepsen relieved to finish the seventh and pitched a scoreless eighth. Three relievers got an out apiece in the ninth inning, with Ernesto Frieri getting the final out to complement Weaver winning his 19th of the season.

In the three game sweep of the White Sox, the Angels outscored them 14-5. Get out your broom, light up your halo, hope for a hot streak and I suppose root for the Rangers as they take on Oakland for four games.
