Los Angeles Angels hammer Chicago White Sox 6-2 – MLB Recap
Los Angeles Angels hammered Chicago White Sox 6-2 in the first game of their three-match regular series encounter on Friday, September 21 at Angel Stadium in California.
Angels’ pitchers performed brilliantly on the mound and earned a great victory for their team. They kept the White Sox batters under pressure and did not allow them to play freely.
Starter Ervin Santana tossed seven solid innings and proved his valour. He received one run and allowed two hits on his consistent 4.93 ERA. He received one homer and retired 11 batters with exceptional pace.
"I just think right now, I don't have to prove anything. I have to believe in myself," Santana said.
"That shows he wants to win too, He's stepped it up in the last three or four starts. He's showing people he's still got it," Torii Hunter said about Santana’s performance as he certainly won the game for the Angels.  
Hunter explained to the media regarding his team’s overall performance and said, "We got to take care of what we can control on the field, Things got to go our way outside of what we do on the field. It's doable."
Relief pitcher Kevin Jepsen pitched 0.2 innings and received one run and three hits. Though he was not able to strike-out any White Sox’s batter but his ERA remained consistent at 3.13.
Scott Downs pitched 0.1 innings and did not allow any run or hit. He struck-out one while his ERA was also remained consistent at 2.74.
On the other hand, the White Sox played under pressure and lost with bitter disgrace.
Jake Peavy pitched five innings and received five runs and eight hits along with a home-run. He could not pitch in the right areas as his ERA rose to 3.40.
"Tonight wasn't my night, Santana was awfully good and shut us down, and it made for a long night," Peavy said
Relief pitcher Brian Omogrosso pitched 1.1 innings and received one run and one hit along with a homer. He retired only one Angels’ hitter as his ERA rose to 3.60.
