Gee, what a surprise!
The White Sox lost but, once again, the Tigers couldn't capitalize and gain any ground.
The always-tough KC Royals beat Chicago 7-5. The score was posted for all to see at Angel Stadium.
Like usual, Max Scherzer was outstanding - 8 innings pitched, 5 hits, 2 runs, no walks and 9 Ks. A master of the strike zone.
On the Angels side, Ervin Santana didn't last as long, but dominated the Detroit batting order - 6 2/3 innings, 4 hits, 2 runs, 1 walk and 10 Ks.
Prince Fielder and Alex Avila went deep for Detroit.
Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick drove in first-inning runs for the Angels.
The game was tied 2-2 until the bottom of the 9th. With 2 outs, pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo drove home pinch-runner Peter Bourjos to give the Angels a 3-2 victory over the Tigers.

With Brandon McCarthy lying in a Bay Area hospital, recovering from brain surgery, the Oakland A's faced a daunting task - winning this game for their fallen comrade. To do it they had to overcome the opposing pitcher - 'King' Felix Hernandez.
The Athletics chased 'King' Felix after 4 2/3 innings. They torched him for 11 hits and 6 runs.
A's catcher George Kottaras hit a 3-run homer and second baseman Cliff Pennington went 4-for-4 as the Athletics beat the Mariners 6-1.
The A's trail Texas by 4 1/2 games in the AL West. Oakland, New York and Baltimore are all within a half-game of each other on top of the wild card standings.

The San Francisco Giants put this up on their scoreboard during their game against the Dodgers on Friday night.
