The 446-foot blast was McCann's second slam in
three games and fifth of his career. The eighth-inning homer
turned a 3-2 lead into a five-run advantage.
White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito struck out 11 in six
innings and Leury Garcia and Tim Anderson each went 2-for-5 with
two runs scored. Yolmer Sanchez was 2-for-3 with one RBI.
Mike Trout smacked his career-high-tying 41st homer for the
Angels. He also is even with Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles
Dodgers for most blasts in the majors.
The Angels were just 1 of 12 with runners in scoring position
while losing for the 15th time in the past 21 games.
Giolito (13-6) allowed two runs, six hits and three walks to win
for just the second time in his past eight starts. He pitched
out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning to set the tone
for an outing in which Los Angeles was 1-for-11 with runners in
scoring position during his six frames.
Left-hander Aaron Bummer pitched two hitless innings and
right-hander Kelvin Herrera worked a perfect ninth.
The White Sox put the game away in the eighth. Garcia and
Anderson reached with singles and Jose Abreu reached on a
fielder's choice as shortstop David Fletcher grabbed his
grounder and short-hopped a throw home, allowing Garcia to
scamper back to third.
McCann followed with his behemoth shot to left off right-hander
Los Angeles left-hander Patrick Sandoval (0-1) gave up three
runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings. The rookie struck out three
and walked one.
Chicago pushed across two runs in the top of the third inning.
Garcia delivered a leadoff double to right and scored on
Anderson's single to right. Anderson was later on third base
with two outs and was getting large leads and that allowed him
to narrowly score on Sandoval's wild pitch to make it 2-0.
Los Angeles got a run back in the bottom of the frame as
Fletcher notched a leadoff triple and scored on Shohei Ohtani's
The White Sox made it 3-1 in the fourth when Welington Castillo
led off with a double, moved to third on Jon Jay's sacrifice
bunt and scored on Sanchez's safety squeeze bunt single.
Trout pulled the Angels within one when he pounded a 2-2 slider
from Giolito 438 feet over the fence in center with one out in
Los Angeles had runners on first and third with one out in the
sixth but Giolito finished his 113-pitch outing by retiring
pinch-hitter Brian Goodwin on a fly to left and striking out
