Haren Improves To 4-0 In Angels’ Win Over Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) — Dan Haren pitched into the seventh inning for his fourth win of the season, Maicer Izturis had three hits and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Haren (4-0) joined teammate Jered Weaver as the only four-game winners. The right-hander allowed two runs on seven hits over 6 1-3 innings, striking out six and not allowing a walk.
After initially struggling in the ninth, rookie closer Jordan Walden got Juan Pierre to pop out to left with the bases loaded for his third save in as many opportunities.
Mark Trumbo added a solo shot in the fourth inning off White Sox starter Mark Buehrle (1-1), as Chicago lost its fourth straight game.
The White Sox opened their 10-game homestand winning four of the first six, and three of their losses were blown saves by the bullpen.
