Rookie Angels Pitcher Wins First Major League Game

CHICAGO (AP) — Tyler Chatwood pitched seven impressive innings for his first major league win and Hank Conger hit a three-run homer to lead the Los Angeles Angels over the Chicago White Sox 7-2 on Saturday.

After the start was delayed more than 2 hours by rain, Chatwood (1-1) allowed just one run and five hits. The lone blemish was Carlos Quentin’s fifth-inning homer, his third of the season and 100th of his career.

Howie Kendrick also homered and drove in three runs for the Angels. Leadoff man Maicer Izturis had three hits.

Gavin Floyd (1-1) took the loss, yielding six runs and eight hits over six innings. He allowed the leadoff batter to reach in each of his first four innings.

Paul Konerko hit his fourth homer for Chicago, a solo shot with two outs in the ninth.
