Angels Dump White Sox on 7th Inning Home Run
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the seventh inning against Mark Buehrle, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Sunday.

The AL West leaders took two of three from the White Sox, who dropped into third place in the AL Central. They are six games behind division-leading Detroit and a half-game back of Minnesota.

Hunter drove Buehrle's 89th pitch into the top half of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his 21st homer, matching last year's total. The win went to Darren Oliver (5-1), who pitched a scoreless seventh in relief of Scott Kazmir in a marquee matchup of All-Star left-handers.
