The two-game winning streak of the Los Angeles Angels came to a halt Sunday as they lost 5-1 to the Chicago White Sox in the Windy City.

In falling to 67-77, the Halos accrued only five hits, none of them for extra bases and were only 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position. The team was again playing without Mike Trout, still sidelined with a toe injury.

Shohei Ohtani’s first inning single drove in David Fletcher for a 1-0 lead that would not last long. The White Sox scored single runs in the third, fifth, sixth and seventh to slowly pull away.

Jaime Barria (4-8) took the loss, giving up four hits and two runs – both on home runs – while striking out two batters and walking none. His ERA is now 6.14.

The Angels will be in action in Anaheim on Monday, hosting the Cleveland Indians (83-61) at the Big A. Patrick Sandoval (0-2) will get the start for the home team.
