|Jones Hits 399th Homer as White Sox Top Angels
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Andruw Jones hit his 399th career home run and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 despite losing starter Jake Peavy in the second inning because of an injury.
Alex Rios added a solo homer and drove in two runs for the White Sox, who are a major league-best 20-5 since June 9 and are a season-high six games over .500.
With the White Sox leading 1-0 in the second inning with two outs, Peavy jumped off the mound after throwing an outside fastball to Mike Napoli. He came off the mound raising his right arm and walked straight to the dugout with team trainer Herm Schneider walking beside him. He will be reevaluated Wednesday.
White Sox reliever Tony Pena (2-1) got the win, allowing only one run on five hits in 4 1-3 innings. He struck out two and walked one.
