CHICAGO -- Whether its Mike Trout and Albert Pujols or Kole Calhoun and Howie Kendrick, theres no telling who might step up for the Los Angeles Angels on a given day. On Tuesday, 10 players drove in runs in a doubleheader sweep of the Chicago White Sox, with the Angels winning the first game 8-4 and capping the night with a 7-5 victory. "I think our guys on the offensive side have proven that theyre going to pressure teams and get us runs," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Our challenge is going to be able to hold leads and we were able to do it today in two games." With Tuesdays wins, the Angels moved to within 3 1/2 games of first-place Oakland in the AL West. "We kept putting the pressure on," said reliever Joe Smith, who earned saves in both games. "After you win that first game of a doubleheader, its really hard to win two. ... (But) you put those runs right up on them early, that was huge for us." Calhoun homered and scored twice as the Angels held off the White Sox to complete the sweep. Kendrick added two hits and scored two runs as the Angels improved to 5-0 against Chicago this season. The twin-bill was quickly arranged after Mondays game was rained out. Jered Weaver (9-6) worked 5 2/3 innings for the win in the second game, allowing nine hits while striking out six. Chicago starter Scott Carroll (2-5) took the loss after pitching six-plus innings and giving up seven runs and 10 hits. The Angels manufactured three second-inning runs on four straight singles and a fielders choice, including RBIs credited to Kendrick, C.J. Cron and Grant Green. "You get yourself in trouble and put yourself in bad spots. It happened in both games," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Especially with this lineup. You dont want to put anybody on and give them extra chances." The White Sox got two back with Conor Gillaspies first home run of the season, a two-run shot that drove in Alexei Ramirez with no outs. In the fifth, Calhoun stroked Carrolls 1-0 pitch into the right-field bullpen, scoring Green for a 5-2 lead. Kendrick scored on Hank Congers sixth-inning single for a 6-2 lead. The White Sox added three runs in the sixth as Gillaspies RBI single scored Ramirez, while Dayan Viciedos homer with one out brought home Gillaspie, cutting the deficit to 6-5. In the seventh, Carroll left with two runners on and no outs. White Sox reliever Jake Petricka walked two batters, forcing in Calhoun for a 7-5 Angels lead. In the first game, Trout hit a three-run homer, Pujols followed with No. 509 of his career and Garrett Richards allowed two hits in eight innings. Josh Hamilton also homered for Los Angeles, his first since June 3. Trouts shot off starter Hector Noesi (2-6) evened the score at 3 in the fifth. Pujols put the Angels ahead with his 17th of the season, tying Gary Sheffield for 24th place on the career chart. Jose Abreu hit his major league-leading 26th home run in the first to give Chicago a 3-0 cushion. Baltimores Nelson Cruz also has 26 homers. Richards (9-2) quickly recovered and improved to 5-0 since May 30. He struck out nine, walked two and matched his longest outing of the season. "I think I was the same pitcher from beginning to end," Richards said. "I wasnt going to let three runs in the first ruin my day." "(Richards) was great," Ventura said. "We got him early when Jose (homered) in the first inning, but after that, we didnt get many good swings against him. He had good stuff. " Noesi didnt allow a hit until the fifth, when Collin Cowgill beat out an infield single. He was pulled with no outs in the sixth and was charged with five earned runs and three hits. He walked seven and struck out seven. NOTES: Ventura said LHP Chris Sale (7-1, 2.30 ERA) is a worthy All-Star candidate despite spending a month on the disabled list. "Youre looking at a guy at the top of his game," Ventura said. "His numbers prove it." ... Abreu became the first player in MLB history with 26 home runs in his first 70 games. He also extended his hitting streak to 16 games, matching Ross Gloads record 16-game run in 2004. ... Pujols was in the lineup despite a swollen lymph gland near his right groin. "It shouldnt be anything thats going to impact what he needs to do," Scioscia said. ... The Angels acquired Rich Hill from Boston for cash earlier in the day. The left-hander had a 3.23 ERA in 25 relief appearances for Triple-A Pawtucket. Authentic Jerseys Cheap .

A larger-than-life personality known for his intimidating style in the 18-yard box, Schmeichels career spanned some 20 years -- including a memorable tenure at Manchester United. Vancouver Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted was one of the young Danes who took notice of the man who played a record 129 times for his country. "He was definitely a big influence because a couple years in a row there he was the best keeper in the world," Ousted said this week. "I was impressed with the saves he made, but also the presence he had when he was playing. "I think like every other Danish goalkeeper, you grew up watching him." But the 29-year-old Ousted is carving out his own story and style in Vancouver, far from where the fiery Schmeichel patrolled the pitches in Europe. "He doesnt play like (Schmeichel) and doesnt have his personality," Whitecaps goalkeeper coach Marius Rovde with a chuckle. "So he has nothing thats like him except for his (blonde) hair. "Maybe hes crazy in different ways." Ousted joined the Whitecaps in June 2013 on a free transfer from Denmarks Randers FC and hasnt looked back, shooting up the depth chart last season once he arrived to grab the starters role ahead of Brad Knighton and the aging Joe Cannon -- neither of whom are still with the club. He has helped Vancouver (1-0-2) to an undefeated start to the 2014 campaign, including his first clean sheet of the season last weekend in a 0-0 road draw against the New England Revolution. "David, since the time hes been here, has been very professional," said Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit. "His drive and his comfort level has always been here and always been high, but I think hes just getting used to playing with his defenders, hes getting used to playing in this league and I think hes getting better and better. "You want him to keep us in it and make big saves when called upon. Hes definitely done that for us this season." It wasnt exactly a smooth transition early on, however. Ousted started his Major League Soccer career with 1-1 draw against the Portland Timbers last August before following that up a week later with a 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes. What followed was a couple of shaky outings that had some questioning if he was the right fit in Vancouver. Rovde pushed hard for the club to sign the six-foot-four 195-pound goalkeeper and wasnt put off by a 0-3-2 string that included eight goals against. "Youre coming to a new league and sometimes in this league, things happen that dont in other leagues -- defenders make mistakes or they dont pressure as hard," said Rovdee.dddddddddddd "You suddenly get free shots from 18, 20 yards that youre not used to. "If youre going to play well in this league, youre going to have to expect the unexpected as a goalkeeper." There was no doubt in Rovdes mind that Ousted was Vancouvers goalkeeper of the present and future. "I expected him to go straight in and be a starter because he has played bigger games than you can play in MLS," said Rovde. "He has played against FC Copenhagen, had clean sheets against them in front of 40,000 fans. He has played those big games. There wasnt any reason to wait." Ousted -- who now has five clean sheets in 16 career starts with Vancouver -- said it took some time to get adjusted not only to a new league, but a new continent. "I definitely feel more acclimatized. Im settled here now. I know the league a little bit better," said Ousted, who stayed behind in Vancouver for extra off-season work after the Whitecaps missed the playoffs in 2013. "Both the style of play and the players here are a little bit different. You have to get used to it, get used to the whole thing with the travel and the different venues. "Maybe it took a little while longer for me than I thought it would but I feel like Im getting used to it now and hopefully I can continue playing well." The Whitecaps have had no complaints about his play so far in 2014. Ousted made a big save early in the clubs season-opening 4-1 home win over the New York Red Bulls and was responsible for saving points the last two weekends on the road -- a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA and that scoreless final in New England. "Even last year when there was one or two little criticisms against him for goals going in, David has remained a top keeper," said rookie Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson. "His work ethic is fantastic. Hes a great guy off the field. Yes he has saved us a point or two now in the last couple of games, but hes the same keeper as he was against New York and hes the same keeper today." Working with Ousted from the centre of defence, DeMerit has noticed more of a take-charge attitude so far in the young season, which continues Saturday at home against the Houston Dynamo (2-0-0). "I think hell continue to be a leader back there for us because he needs to be," said DeMerit. "Down the spine of our team, thats where the leadership needs to come from." Added Ousted: "Its a big part of my game and something that Im trying to develop even more -- being the guy they can rely on and the guy whos taking responsibility. "I was glad that the club put their confidence in me and I still am. Im still working hard to try and repay that confidence." ' ' '
