Pierre singled, stole his major league-leading 61st base and scored on Carlos Quentin's single in the sixth to get Chicago within 3-2.
Mark Teahen led off the White Sox seventh with a single, advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Alejandro De Aza and scored when right fielder Bobby Abreu took a bad route to Pierre's two-out drive to the alley and the ball eluded his outstretched glove. Vizquel delivered Pierre with a single through the middle that chased Weaver.
The Angels took an early lead on Abreu's RBI double and run-scoring singles by Torii Hunter and rookie Hank Conger. Abreu's hit made him the first player in history to record 40 doubles, 20 homers and 20 stolen bases five times in a career. No one else has done it more than three times.
NOTES: Angels manager Mike Scioscia hasn't contacted Texas manager Ron Washington yet to offer congratulations on Saturday's AL West-clinching victory by the Rangers, but plans on doing it face-to-face when they begin a season-ending four-game set in Arlington next Thursday. "He's done a terrific job, and they deserved it," Scioscia said. "They certainly played better than us over the course of the season. They struggled during the last month, but we weren't prepared to take advantage of it when the door was open. Otherwise, we'd be right in there. But that became a moot point, and that's what's disappointing. The guys in that room didn't perform at a level that would have had us contending, so that's kind of the fly in the ointment." ... Chicago LHP Mark Buehrle will attempt to end a drought of six straight winless starts Monday night in Chicago against Boston. His fifth out of that game will make him the only pitcher to record 200 innings, 10 wins and 30 starts in each of the last 10 seasons.
