Torii Hunter HR is Difference for Kaz and Angels

Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 3, Chicago White Sox 2

Scott Kazmir threw 120 pitches, but only allowed 2 ER in his 6 IP. The Angels bats held up their end of the bargain, with Maicer Izturis scoring a run early and driving one in the person of Howie Kendrick later on. Knotted at 2 at the 7th inning stretch, Torii Hunter led the bottom of the inning off with a solo Homer and it stood, making a winner of reliever Darren Oliver. Kevin Jepsen got 4 outs and Brian Fuentes got his 41st Save.

Izturis was filling in for a slumping Chone Figgins and did fine at 3B with the glove. Kazmir suffered from Weaveritis throughout the game, allowing more foul balls to extend innings and yet managing to sneak around the ever-present baserunners. He allowed 7 hits in 6 IP, 2 ER, struck out 2 and walked 3. He demonstrated to the Halo faithful that even when he doesn't have his best stuff he is still a battler. Kazmir remains winless as an Angel in 3 starts.
