With a less than two weeks left in the regular season, the Angels and White Sox are fighting for their playoff lives, fully aware of just how important every win is.

After the Angels got a 4-2 victory over the White Sox on Saturday, they moved 2 1/2 games back of the second American League Wild Card spot, while Chicago saw its AL Central lead over the Tigers cut to just a half-game.

"The biggest thing is, you need to win games and get other teams to beat up the teams in front of you," Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick said. "We'll take it any way we can get it."
