Jered Weaver picked up his 19th win of the season Sunday as the Angels completed a three-game sweep of the reeling White Sox.

Weaver allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings in the 4-1 victory. The game was scoreless until the sixth, when Albert Pujols delivered a two-run double and Kendrys Morales hit a two-run homer to give the Angels all of the runs they’d need. The White Sox came back with one in the seventh, but they could do no additional damage.

The White Sox have now lost five in a row, but they’re still ahead of the Tigers at the moment after Detroit lost the first game of Sunday’s doubleheader against the Twins. The Tigers could move back into a tie for first place in the AL Central by winning the nightcap.

The Angels are 2 1/2 games back of the A’s for the second wild card. They get Monday off before finishing with three games at home against the Mariners and then road series in Texas and Seattle. Oakland has the same opponents. The A’s have four games in Texas beginning Monday and then three games at home against both the Mariners and Rangers.

    The final 9-10 games are shaping up for an interesting finish. The As have 2 series against the Rangers and 1 vs the Mariners. The Angels are exactly the opposite. Not easy for either, but a bit more challenging for the As. Meanwhile, my Rays are on the road against both “Sox” before finishing out vs the Orioles at home–this week will tell whether they have any real shot at getting to the 2nd wild car spot.

    Didn’t think this season could wind up better than last, but I see where I could be wrong. Laying in some extra popcorn.

    End of season chaos in baseball is the funnest baseball.
