Angels Squander Santana Start, Swept by Sox

FINAL IN CHICAGO: White Sox 1, Angels 0

The Angels struggling offense managed just two squib-hits against Sox lefty John Danks who pitched a 2-hit shutout. Danks took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but allowed a seeing-eye grounder to left off the bat of Reggie Willits to lead off the inning. Howie Kendrick followed Willits' hit with a single to center, however the bats cooled quickly as the next three Angels batters (notice I didn't say "hitters") stranded the pair leaving the Angels scoreless. The Angels scored just 5 runs in the four-game Chicago series.

Unfortunately, the halos wasted a great start by Ervin Santana. Santana's record falls to 8-7 despite giving up just 3 hits while striking out 4 and walking 3. The lone White Sox run scored in the first inning after Santana hit Sox leadoff hitter Juan Pierre who eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Paul Konerko.
