Somebody Unpack The Bats: White Sox 5, Angels 3

After missing yesterday's lackluster Lackey outing in Baltimore, the Angels reprised that with another tepid offensive outing against a pitcher having a tough year, Jose Contreras. Bartolo Colon didn't last five innings, despite a 1-2-3 first that encouraged as much as his subsequent work made it plain he had nothing. It didn't help that Casey Kotchman and Maicer Izturis both errored on the same play in the third, which led to a big four-run inning for the Sox.

The best thing about the game was three solid innings of work in relief by Ervin Santana, who must've been hypnotized into thinking he was at home.

The M's beat Tampa Bay 2-1 to nibble away at the Angels' division lead, making it 7.5 games. Boston lost to New York 8-7, and Cleveland beat Kansas City 5-4, which means the Angels are closer to having the best record in baseball but find themselves tied with the Indians for second place.

i won't fault Colon for that loss - the errors and a bloop single did him in more than anything else. your headline told the story and the rest of the analysis was fine.

and a correction - since the Angels lost as well as Boston, we didn't move 'closer' to home field advantage.
