|Pujols, Wells Homer to Lead Angels Over White Sox
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Albert Pujols welcomed his new hitting coach to town with a go-ahead three-run homer and Vernon Wells added a two-run shot to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.
Jim Eppard was with the Angels for the first time as hitting coach after replacing Mickey Hatcher, who was unceremoniously dumped on Tuesday night by new general manager Jerry DiPoto 1 1/2 months into Hatcher's 13th season on the job.
Jerome Williams (4-1) won his fourth straight decision, allowing two runs and 10 hits over eight innings with five strikeouts and no walks.
Gavin Floyd (3-4) surrendered seven runs and 10 hits in six innings, including both home runs.
