Angels Lose Vernon Wells, Blasted By White Sox, 8-0

The White Sox blasted four doubles and three home runs, on their way to a 8-0 win over the Angels, in the opening game of a three-game series at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Carlos Quentin led the way for Chicago, with two doubles and a home run, knocking in five runs. Edwin Jackson pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out five for his third win of the season.

Ervin Santana allowed five runs and 11 baserunners in his six innings of work, taking the loss to fall to 1-4 on the season. However, the Angels suffered another loss, as left fielder Vernon Wells left the game in the fourth inning with a right groin strain. After the game, Wells was placed on the 15-day disabled list, per Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

Alexi Amarista, who started the game at second base, moved to left in place of Wells, with Howie Kendrick entering the game at second base.

The Angels managed just six hits and two walks against three White Sox pitchers. Joel Pineiro and John Danks face off Tuesday night in the second game of the series. Monday night was the third straight win for the White Sox.
