Tuesday, August 23, 2011
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Peter Bourjos drove a single through a drawn-in infield with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory.
Howie Kendrick homered and tripled as the suddenly surging Angels matched their longest win streak of the season with another late rally, trimming their AL West deficit to 3 12 games behind Texas.
Paul Konerko drove in the tying run with an eighth-inning single that was his 2,000th hit as the White Sox lost for the sixth time in 17 games.
After Erick Aybar's one-out single off Jason Frasor (3-3), pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo moved him to third with a single. Maicer Izturis walked to load the bases, and Bourjos singled to left.
