Final Score in Chicago: Angels 2, White Sox 5 ...

Joe Saunders had his moments, Mike Napoli threw out a baserunner attempting to steal 2B, Howie Kendrick had a pair of hits, Torii Hunter did too and Scot Shields and Fernando Rodney combined for 2 and a third scoreless innings pitched.

But those were the only highlights on a night that the Angels left a combined 13 men on base, managed only 5 hits against ancient Freddy Garcia and struck out ten times. The team lost its third game in a row and a game in the standings to the Texas Rangers who, resting Vladimir Guerrero and Ian Kinsler managed a 4-3 victory over the Cakewalk Indians.

Rain is in the forecast for the Angels 11:00 AM (pst) start tomorrow.
