ANAHEIM, Calif. Matt Ryan Jersey . —Two straight wins have
the Los Angeles Angels still in the thick of the playoff race. Four consecutive
losses havent derailed the Chicago White Soxs chances either. Dan Haren earned
his first win at home in more than a month, Mark Trumbo capped a four-run first
inning with a two-run single and the Angels won 4-2 on Saturday night, trimming
Chicagos AL Central lead to a half-game over Detroit. “Were really positive,”
Haren said. “Its really a testament to the leaders on the team. Torii (Hunter)
has gotten his point across that were not going to give up until were eliminated
or we win.” Haren (12-11) allowed two runs and six hits in six-plus innings,
struck out four and walked one for his first win in Anaheim since beating Tampa
Bay on July 27. He had been 0-3 with an 8.77 ERA in three home starts since
then. “Two double plays were big,” Haren said, crediting the defence. “For the
most part I was keeping the ball down. Thats a really good lineup.”
Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth to earn his 20th save in 23 chances after
giving up a go-ahead home run in each of his previous two outings. “Ernie had a
couple of rough outings and tonight he found another gear,” Angels manager Mike
Scioscia said. The Angels have won six of nine and are 2 1/2 games behind
Oakland for the second AL wild card. They moved to a season-high 14 games over
.500. “Every guy has a ton of fight left in them and thats really what you
want,” Trumbo said. Jose Quintana (6-5) gave up four runs and six hits in five
innings, struck out three and walked five for the White Sox, who have scored
just 10 runs in their past five games. Chicago struck out 12 times in a 6-2 loss
in the series opener Friday. “This is baseball and guys should be having fun
doing it,” said White Sox manager Robin Ventura, who was ejected in the fourth.
“Theres stress and stuff like that because you want to win games, but wed rather
be doing this than trying to ruin somebody elses post-season chances.” Ventura
was tossed by first base umpire Ed Hickox for arguing a balk called on Quintana
with the White Sox trailing 4-1. The Angels had runners at the corners with none
out when Quintana made an attempted pickoff throw to first baseman Paul Konerko,
who was playing way off the bag against the right-handed hitting Mike Trout.
Quintana led Konerko to the bag with his throw, and was called for his second
balk of the season. “I dont even know exactly how that went about because it was
a designed play, so I was a little surprised that the balk was called,” Quintana
said through a translator. “I still dont understand it. I would have to look at
the video. But its a play that we have. Its not one that weve tried all the
time, but we definitely practiced it in spring training.” Hickox told a pool
reporter that Quintana didnt throw directly to first base, but 8 to 10 feet
toward second baseman Gordon Beckham. “Konerko was not breaking until after the
pitcher threw the ball and then he was just trying to catch the ball. So in my
judgment, there was no attempt to retire the runner,” the umpire said. “My view
and my judgment is that Konerko just went to try to catch the ball from going
down the line.” The Angels failed to score in that inning after loading the
bases. They tied a season high with four runs in the first. Albert Pujols
ground-rule double—the 500th of his career—scored Trout, who walked.
Hunter added an RBI single before Trumbos two-run single with two outs made it
4-0. Chicagos first run came on Konerkos 24th homer leading off the second. They
added another run on pinch-hitter DeWayne Wises groundout to second off
Garrett Richards. NOTES: Pujols became the 19th player in major league history
to record at least 500 doubles and 400 homers in his career. His 45 doubles are
the most since he had that many in 2009. ... The White Sox have hit a major
league-leading 94 homers since the All-Star break. ... It was Chicagos fourth
losing streak of four or more games this season. ... It was Venturas fourth
ejection in his first year as a manager. His last was on Aug. 25 against
Seattle. ... Konerkos homer was the first extra-base hit of his career against
Haren, who had previously given up six singles to Konerko. Tony Gonzalez Pink Jersey . Seattle and Perez
agreed Saturday to a $1.5 million, one-year contract. He was 1-3 with a 2.12 ERA
in 33 games last season and had a stretch of 20 consecutive appearances in July
and August where he did not allow a run. Julio Jones Limited Jersey . – Steve Molitor
will face southpaw Fernando Beltran Jr. http://www.falconsfansroom.com/roddy-white-jerseys
. Warner, from London, Ont., beat his personal best high jump of 2.02 metres to
equal American Ashton Eaton and Belgiums Hans Van Alphen jumps of 2. Julio Jones White Jersey . The FA said on its
website Friday that Terry has requested a personal hearing, the date of which
has yet to be set. Terry was cleared in a British court of law in July of
racially abusing Ferdinand in a Premier League match last October. Dunta Robinson Jersey . Riesch finished
second, 0.2 seconds behind Anja Paerson. The Swede won the combined downhill and
slalom in 2:30.60. Vonn was third, another 0.06 back. Vonn needed to win to
capture the super-combi title.Its been a bit of a whirlwind and busy summer for
Charles Hudon and things wont get any slower with training camp just a few weeks
away. The fifth round, 122nd overall pick by the Montreal Canadiens in this
summers NHL Draft has gone from the excitement in Pittsburgh to training
sessions and being immersed with Team Canada in the Canada-Russia Challenge. The
Alma, Quebec forward, who celebrated his 18th birthday by being drafted by the
Canadiens, now finds himself as the only current Habs prospect that is in the
mix for Team Canadas 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship team that will head
to Ufa, Russia this winter. Taking part in the Challenge series, which is
serving as an evaluation camp for Canada, he certainly is using the opportunity
to make his mark. And head coach Steve Spott likes what he sees. “Hes the kind
of player that does everything well,” he said. “Hes always on the right side of
the puck and he has great offensive instincts – a big steal in the draft for
Montreal.” Hudon has been hard at work training this summer at the Canadiens
practice facility in Brossard under the direction of team strength and
conditioning coordinator Pierre Allard. He teams up regularly for workouts with
Louis Leblanc, who has added some size himself this off-season. The experience
gained through Team Canadas camp has been a bonus. “It was a great experience to
go to RRussia for the first two games, both on and off the ice for what to
expect,” noted Hudon, who now finds himself fine-tuning some elements of his
game on the advice of Canadiens management, including director of player
procurement Trevor Timmins who has kept in touch. Tony Gonzalez Impact Jersey. His time with
Team Canada has also allowed him to focus on some special teams work, which he
hopes to excel at with the afforded ice-time hell earn back with his junior team
in Chicoutimi. “Ive had the chance to work on the power play and penalty kill,
something I want to do a lot with Chicoutimi,” he explained. ”But Ill also learn
here with Team Canada.” While a lot of hard work and training has filled his
summer days, Hudon still has times where it hasnt fully sunk in that he has been
drafted by the Canadiens. But he takes it all in stride. “A few times Ive signed
some Canadiens hats for a few people or they recognize me,” he said. “Its been
fun with my family and they are proud of me.” While Hudon looks forward to
skating with the Habs prospects this fall, he understands the process and is
taking it one step at a time. With a great demeanour and attitude, hes on the
right track, and could very well have the chance to shoot for gold with Team
Canada in Russia this December, which would be nothing but a positive for the
Canadiens and the prospects future. ’ ’ ’
