Angels Vs. White Sox Final Score: Albert Pujols Homers Again In 6-1 Loss

Albert Pujols hit his third home run of the year and his second in as many days, but the Los Angeles Angels could muster no additional offense in a 6-1 loss to the visiting Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

The White Sox struck first, scoring on an RBI single by A.J. Pierzynski in the top of the third inning. The Sox added three more runs in the top of the fourth on RBI hits by Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko.

The Halos finally got on the board with the Pujols solo shot in the bottom of the sixth inning, but would get no closer than 4-1. Dayan Viciedo got the run back with his own homer in the top of the eighth inning, his sixth of the season. The damage could have been worse, but Vernon Wells climbed the wall in left field to rob Gordon Beckham of a two-run homer just a few batters later.

The Angels bullpen once again proved to be a problem, as David Pauley allowed the home run to Viciedo and gave up three straight singles to start the top of the ninth, culminating in another Pierzynski RBI.

Los Angeles starter C.J. Wilson lasted just 3.2 innings and allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits and six walks. The Halos managed just four hits in the game, fully four of which were from Mark Trumbo, who was 4-for-4 with a double, raising his batting average to .370

The Angels will head into interleague play on Friday having split this short two-game series against Chicago.
