Ramirez is batting .241 for the White Sox with one home run -- his only RBI -- and 19 strikeouts in 58 at-bats. When the 12-time All-Star joined the Dodgers at the non-roster trading deadline two seasons ago, he batted .396 with 17 homers and 53 RBIs in 53 games down the stretch to lead them to an NL West title. The following season, he received a 50-game suspension for failing a drug test.
NOTES: Hunter flied out in the first with a runner at third base, struck out with runners at second and third in the sixth, and fanned again with runners at the corners in the eighth. The four-time All-Star has had two run-scoring hits in a game just once since July 4, and only four times since April 30. ... The Angels' four stolen bases gave them at least 100 in each of the last 10 seasons, something no other team has done. ... The Angels used their 128th different lineup, with Mark Trumbo making his first major league start at 1B and Andrew Romine playing SS in his big league debut. Romine's contract was selected from Double-A Arkansas on Friday. ... White Sox LF Juan Pierre leads the majors with 60 stolen bases, five fewer than his career best total in 2003 with Florida. He has been hit by a pitch 21 times, the most in the majors, and four more than the previous three seasons combined.
