Chicago White Sox's Leury Garcia watches after hitting the game-winning single against the Los Angeles Angels during the ninth inning of a baseball game in Chicago on Wednesday. The White Sox won 3-2.

Garcia single lifts White Sox over Angels 3-2

CHICAGO – Leury Garcia drove in the winning run with a pinch-hit single off Michael Morin in the ninth inning to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.

The White Sox shook off a doubleheader sweep and finally took out the Angels after dropping their first five games this season and seven straight overall.

Alejandro De Aza, who entered earlier as a runner for Paul Konerko, started the winning rally with a one-out single in the ninth off Morin (2-2). Conor Gillaspie followed with a broken-bat single past a diving Albert Pujols at first base to put runners on the corners.

The Angels then brought in Kole Calhoun to replace right fielder Collin Cowgill and serve as the second baseman as part of a five-man infield. Garcia, batting for Moises Sierra, lined a 2-1 pitch to left to drive in De Aza.
