Josh Hamilton hit two home runs, Albert Pujols also connected and the Los Angeles went deep a season-high five times in a 13-2 rout of the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.
Jeff Keppinger walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go-ahead run — his first base on balls in 141 plate appearances this season — and the Chicago White Sox rallied with three runs in the eighth to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on Thursday night for their season-high third straight road win.
The Chicago White Sox needed a big start from ace Chris Sale, and he nearly gave them something historic.
White Sox starter Jose Quintana (2-1) allowed three runs in the loss. He gave up five hits and struck out five.

You have to give some credit to the White Sox for creativity. At least they find different ways to lose to the Minnesota Twins.
