Pujols Homers Twice, Santana Hit by Liner
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Albert Pujols hit his first two homers for the Angels and Ervin Santana exited after being hit by a line drive in Los Angeles' 9-7 loss the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.

Santana left with a bruised right arm after Alexei Ramirez's liner struck him in the shoulder with one out in the second inning. As he iced the shoulder, Santana said no X-ray was planned.

Pujols hit a three-run homer off left-hander Chris Sale in the third inning. Then he hit a solo shot off Anthony Carter in the fifth.

After Santana was hit, he was able to field the ball and throw out Ramirez at first base. Santana allowed a run and a hit in 1 1-3 innings.

Sale allowed five runs in 4 1-3 innings.

The White Sox's Tyler Flowers and Adam Dunn, and the Angels' Howie Kendrick each homered.
