Recap: LA Angels vs. Chicago WSox


The Sports Network

Anaheim, CA ( - Mike Trout launched a game-tying grand slam and Erick Aybar added a go-ahead single as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim scored six runs in the eighth to rally for a 6-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox in the middle contest of a three-game set Saturday at Angel Stadium.

Chicago starter Chris Sale cruised through the first seven frames and took the hill in the eighth with his team leading 5-0, but Aybar opened the inning with a double before scoring on Chris Iannetta's single to center to get the Halos on the board.

After Collin Cowgill reached on shortstop Alexei Ramirez's fielding error, Howie Kendrick ripped a single to right to load the bases for Trout, who clubbed a payoff pitch over the wall in center field to tie the game.

Jake Petricka (0-1) promptly replaced Sale and retired the next two hitters, but Josh Hamilton and C.J. Cron stroked back-to-back singles before Aybar's base hit to center plated the deciding run.

Ernesto Frieri fired a 1-2-3 ninth to nail down his ninth save of the season, while reliever Cory Rasmus (1-0) picked up the win after spinning a pair of hitless innings.

Hamilton finished 3-for-4 with a run scored for the Angels, who have won three of their last four games.

Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored, while Adam Dunn added a solo homer in the setback.
