Recap: Chicago WSox vs. LA Angels

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Howie Kendrick's run-scoring single in the top of the 10th inning lifted the Angels over the White Sox, 6-5, in the middle installment of a three-game series.

Matt Thornton (4-7) started on the mound for Chicago in the 10th. After retiring the first two batters, Alberto Callaspo doubled to left-center field. Kendrick followed with a base hit to right to score the go-ahead run.

Kendrick ended with two RBI for Los Angeles, which snapped a three-game skid. Albert Pujols hit a solo homer and knocked in two runs.

Ervin Santana got the start for the Angels and gave up three runs -- two earned -- on five hits over six innings. Kevin Jepsen (2-1) pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.

Kevin Youkilis hit a pair of homers for the White Sox, who had a three-game winning streak stopped. A.J. Pierzynski added a solo homer.

Chicago starter Gavin Floyd allowed five runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Floyd struggled with his command in the first inning, which led to the Angels scoring three runs. Mike Trout was hit by a pitch and Maicer Izturis followed with a ground-rule double to left. Pujols hit an RBI single to left before stealing second. Mark Trumbo plated another run when he hit a grounder to shortstop Alexei Ramirez. Pujols got caught between second and third on the play and was tagged out. Kendrys Morales, Callaspo and Kendrick worked three consecutive walks to force in a run. Floyd struck out the next two batters to end his 41-pitch inning.

Youkilis' solo homer to left in the bottom half cut the gap to 3-1.

Los Angeles got the run back in the second. Trout led off with a single, moved to second on Izturis' groundout, advanced to third when Pujols flied out and scored on a wild pitch.

Trout took away a homer from Gordon Beckham by reaching over the wall in left- center field to end the second.

"When you can take a homer away, every time I get a chance I'm going to do it," said Trout, who also robbed Baltimore's J.J. Hardy of a home run by leaping well over the right-center fence at Camden Yards on June 27.

"He has everything," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of Trout. "He's leading off, with power, has speed, is good in the outfield."

Chicago stayed close by scoring a run of its own in the third. Alejandro De Aza doubled and Youkilis was hit by a pitch. De Aza was caught between second and third when Vernon Wells made a nice sliding catch in foul territory. Wells' throw went to third baseman Callaspo, whose throw to second was way off the mark. With runners on the corners, Paul Konerko hit a grounder to third. De Aza slid under the tag at home to make it 4-2.

Pierzynski's homer to right in the sixth made it a one-run game, but Pujols responded with a solo shot to left in the seventh to make it 5-3.

Youkilis tied the game in the bottom half with one swing of the bat. LaTroy Hawkins gave up a single to De Aza, who scored on Youkilis' blast to left.
