Weaver Wins 19th, Angels Close In Wild-Card Race

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Jered Weaver kept the Los Angeles Angels within striking distance in the AL wild-card chase, posting his league-leading 19th victory on Sunday with a 4-1 decision over the struggling Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox lost their fifth in a row and led Detroit by a half-game in the AL Central. The Tigers lost the opener of their day-night doubleheader against Minnesota.

Albert Pujols reached the 100-RBI mark for the 11th time in 12 big league seasons with a two-run double as the Angels remained 2 1/2 games behind Oakland for the second wild-card spot.

Kendrys Morales hit a two-run homer that helped the Angels complete a three-game sweep.

Weaver (19-4) established a career high for wins.
