Sale, Garcia lead White Sox past Angels 8-2
CHICAGO — Chris Sale was back in All-Star form, and Avisail Garcia homered twice to drive in four runs as the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-2 Monday night.
Tyler Flowers added a solo shot to back Sale (10-7), who rebounded with a gem after allowing 14 earned runs and 18 hits in 10 1-3 innings while losing his previous two outings. The lanky left-hander didn’t allow a run — or more than one baserunner in an inning — until Johnny Giavotella drove in two with a double in the seventh.
Sale returned for the eighth but was replaced by Nate Jones with one out after hitting Kole Calhoun with a pitch. Sale was charged with two runs and five hits. He struck out seven.
