ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ervin Santana struck out 11 while pitching seven innings of two-hit ball and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 6-2 on Friday night to gain ground in the playoff race.

Mike Trout and Kendrys Morales homered for Los Angeles, which pulled within 3½ games of Oakland for the second AL wild card. The Athletics lost 2-1 to the New York Yankees in 10 innings.

Chicago’s lead in the AL Central was trimmed to 1½ games over second-place Detroit, which had its series opener against Minnesota postponed by rain. White Sox starter Jake Peavy (11-12) gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings.
