GAME 35 - WHITE SOX AT ANGELS
ANAHEIM – The Angels put up five runs in the first inning and rode the right arm of starting pitcher Ramon Ortiz and two relievers to a 6-3 win over the Chicago White Sox before 40,535 at Edison Field.
Ortiz (4-3) gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings while striking out eight, getting plenty of support from the offense, which had 12 hits, including two each from Darin Erstad, Troy Glaus, Garret Anderson and Scott Spiezio.
Glaus hit a two-run homer, his seventh of the year, and Spiezio drove in three. Troy Percival struck out the side in the ninth for his sixth save.

The game remains scoreless.
The story of this game should be how the Angels are barely clinging to life after sneaking out of Houston with a late-inning rally to avoid a sweep. But you and I know we can't focus on that, not after the shenanigans Bo Porter and the umpires pulled.
