Angels rally for 4 runs in 7th inning to beat White Sox 6-5

Mike Trout and Brian Goodwin drove in two runs apiece, and the Los Angeles Angels scored four in the seventh inning to rally past the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Saturday night.

Los Angeles sent 10 batters to the plate in the seventh and scored off four Chicago pitchers. Trout lined a bases-loaded single to left field to knock in two runs, and Justin Upton tied it with a sharp grounder that went under the glove of third baseman Ryan Goins.

Trout scored the go-ahead run when Goodwin drew a bases-loaded walk from Evan Marshall (3-2) with two outs.

The Angels trailed by four going into the bottom of the third before starting their comeback. Upton’s solo home run to center field made it 5-2.

Taylor Cole (3-4) got the win with 1 2/3 innings of scoreless ball. Hansel Robles retired the side in order in the ninth for his 18th save.

Eloy Jiménez homered during a four-run third inning for the White Sox, who lost for just the second time in 44 games when leading after six innings.

Jiménez hit a two-run shot to center off José Suarez for his 21st of the season, which leads AL rookies. His drive came after James McCann gave the White Sox a 3-1 lead with a double to left.

The White Sox got on the board quickly. Leury Garcia led off with a triple to right on the sixth pitch of the game and scored on Tim Anderson’s groundout.

The Angels tied it in the second on Goodwin’s solo homer to center.
