ANAHEIM – Brian Goodwin got the Angels on the board Saturday with a powerful swing. He drove in the game-winning run against the Chicago White Sox without swinging his bat.

Goodwin hit his 11th home run of the season in the second inning and drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh. His patient approach against White Sox pitcher Evan Marshall paid off with the final run in the Angels’ 6-5 win before an announced crowd of 39,419 at Angel Stadium.

Goodwin’s walk capped a four-run rally from a 5-2 deficit to begin the seventh inning. Justin Upton also hit a home run for the Angels, who got scoreless relief from Taylor Cole (3-4), Cam Bedrosian and Hansel Robles.

Luis Rengifo began the fateful seventh inning by drawing a walk. Right-hander Jimmy Cordero struck out Matt Thaiss and was replaced by left-hander Jace Fry, who allowed a single to pinch hitter Shohei Ohtani.

With three right-handed hitters due up, White Sox manager Rick Renteria turned to his third pitcher of the inning, Marshall. The right-hander promptly walked David Fletcher, loading the bases for Mike Trout.

Trout had been stymied by journeyman left-hander Hector Santiago, striking out twice in his first three plate appearances. This time, Trout smoked a single to left field, driving in Rengifo and Ohtani to bring the Angels within 5-4. Fletcher went to second base on the play.

The next batter, Upton, pounded a hard ground ball to third base, where Ryan Goins couldn’t come up with the ball on his backhand. The ball stayed alive long enough for Fletcher to score from second base, tying the game at 5. Goins was charged with a critical error.

With first base open, the White Sox made the unusual decision to walk Kole Calhoun and pitch to Albert Pujols with the bases loaded. It paid off as Marshall got Pujols two swing weakly at a two-strike curveball for the inning’s second out. But Goodwin drew a five-pitch walk, forcing in Trout with the winning run.

Rookie left-hander Jose Suarez allowed four runs in four innings of relief. Fletcher had two of the Angels’ six hits. Robles recorded his 18th save as the Angels (61-64) evened the two-game series against the White Sox (55-67).

In the first inning, Leury Garcia greeted Angels pitcher Noe Ramirez with a triple and scored on a groundout by Tim Anderson. Ramirez pitched into the second inning without allowing another run, then ceded his “opening” duties to Suarez.

Looking to recover from a pair of disastrous starts in which he tipped his pitches against the Reds and Pirates, Suarez at least limited the bleeding to one bad inning.

Suarez quickly retired Adam Engel and Leury Garcia to begin the third inning before the White Sox rallied for four runs. Tim Anderson walked. Jose Abreu singled. James McCann smoked a double into the left field corner, bring home Anderson and Abreu to give Chicago a 3-0 lead.

The next batter, Eloy Jimenez, got hold of a two-strike curveball and hit a home run to center field. Down 5-2 after three innings, the Angels fell behind quickly for the second consecutive night.

Suarez pitched into the sixth inning without allowing another run. He allowed another three hits, all singles. But did he solve his pitch-tipping problem?

Suarez threw 82 pitches. The White Sox hit four of them 100 mph or harder. One was Abreu’s single (on a fastball), one was Jimenez’s homer (on a curve) and two were turned into outs by Angels third baseman David Fletcher – including a nifty double play.

Chicago was especially aggressive swinging at changeups in or near the strike zone, but only one resulted in a hit – McCann’s double. If Suarez was tipping pitches, perhaps the White Sox should have done more.

Cole got out of a first-and-second, one-out jam in the sixth inning. He retired the side in order in the seventh.

Leading for the first time, the Angels turned to Bedrosian in the eighth. The right-hander struck out Welington Castillo, Ryan Goins and Yolmer Sanchez in order. Robles struck out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning.
