Jered Weaver's career numbers suggest he doesn't give the opposition too many chances to break through. In other words, when you get your shot, make it count because you're most likely not going to get another. The White Sox had their chance early on Sunday afternoon. Like many potential big innings of late, the opportunity went to waste. Weaver then picked up steam and the Los Angeles Angels finally got to Gavin Floyd in a 4-1 victory over the White Sox in front of 36,546 at Angel Stadium. Even though the White Sox ended their road trip with five straight losses, they will be, rather remarkably, in no worse than a tie for first place after the Detroit Tigers lost 10-4 to the Minnesota Twins in the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday. The White Sox currently hold a half-game lead over the Tigers, who face the Twins in the second game at 6:05 p.m. (CST). Weaver entered Sunday's start with a 100-51 career record. Over 204 career starts, Weaver (19-4) has allowed 1.143 base runners per inning, fourth-best among active pitchers and 56th in baseball history.
