The Angels lost to them Chicago White Sox 9-7 on Thursday afternoon at Angel Stadium.
After the White Sox took a 1-0 lead early in the first inning, the Angels reacted, leveling the score and taking the lead between the bottom of the first and second innings with home runs from Mickey Moniak, Mike Moustakas and Hunter Renfroe.
But early in the third period, the White Sox threw up a string of hits, also benefiting from two free trips to first place on a walk and hit by pitch with Patrick Sandoval on the mound. When Sandoval left the inning, the White Sox had scored six runs.
Not much improved for the Angels after that. The White Sox had two more runs at the end of the ninth round.
Sandoval, who threw five innings as the Angels’ starter, finished the game with seven earned runs with eight hits, two walks and eight strikeouts.
The Angels made even more noise at the end of the ninth when Shohei Ohtani hit his double home run, but Brandon Drury struck to end the game.
