White Sox 4, Angels 3 Postgame Notes: Offseason Plans Being Made

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - "We didn't execute on the offensive side," said Angels manager Mike Scioscia. "We had a lot of young guys out there going through some growing pains."

The Angels built a 3-0 lead in a first inning that featured an RBI double by Bobby Abreu and run-scoring singles by Torii Hunter and Hank Conger.

"I threw a lot of pitches in the first inning," Pena said. "After the first, I told myself I had to shut them out every inning."

Chicago got a run back in the second on Mark Teahen's sacrifice fly and Pierre came home on a Carlos Quentin single to trim the deficit to 3-2 in the sixth.

The White Sox moved ahead in the next frame. Teahen led off with a single and Alejandro De Aza sacrificed him to second. One out later, Pierre drove in the tying run with a triple over the head of Abreu in left field. Vizquel followed with a grounder up the middle to put Chicago on top to stay.

Matt Thornton pitched the final two innings to earn his seventh save.

Weaver recorded nine strikeouts and now leads the majors with 229...Chicago concluded the road portion of its 2010 schedule with a 43-38 record.

In addition, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reported on the offseason baseball plans of several young Angels:

Brandon Wood will head to Arizona. Hank Conger and Mark Trumbo will play in Venezuela. Peter Bourjos will play in the Dominican. More players will play elsewhere, whether in Mexico, Puerto Rico or even Australia.
