|Podsednik Leads White Sox Past Angels in Extras
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Scott Podsednik hit an inside-the-park homer and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th on a wild pitch, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.
Podsednik hit the White Sox's first inside-the-park homer since 2002 in the third. He doubled leading off the 10th against Angels closer Brian Fuentes (1-4). Gordon Beckham singled to advance Podsednik to third. A.J. Pierzynski then hit a flyball to center that was too shallow for Podsednik to score.
Rookie Kevin Jepsen came on and threw a wild pitch to the backstop on a 1-2 count and Podsednik raced home for the lead.
John Danks scattered six hits over six scoreless innings and left with a 3-0 lead, but the White Sox bullpen couldn't protect it.
