The struggling Angels continue to struggle. They fell to 2-5 on their road trip after Kevin Gregg was knocked out in the third inning, falling victim to the big bats of the White Sox. The Angels managed only five hits, and scored on Vlad Guerrero's first-inning groundout.
On the day Jose Contreras went on the DL, Freddy Garcia pitched like an ace over eight innings, improving to 13-3 lifetime vs. the Angels. Jim Thome and Jermaine Dye homered in a six-run third inning. Joe Crede also connected.
