The “second half” of the 2018 season for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim isn’t starting off as well as hoped. After a 5-3 come-from-ahead loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday, the Halos have lost three of four games (actually, four of five overall) and again dropped below .500 at 50-51.
At first it looked good for the Orange County team, breaking out to a 3-1 lead over the ChiSox (35-64), on the strength of a two-run double by Kole Calhoun and a solo home run by Shohei Ohtani. But Jose Abreu homered and drove in a run on a single to push the visitors to the win in Anaheim. Jaime Barria (5-7) took the loss. The Angels will again host the Sox on Tuesday with Felix Pena (1-0) making the start for the home team.
