(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)ExpandCHICAGO — Carlos Perez made the most of a rare opportunity to start on Thursday, as most of the Angels regulars had the day off following their elimination from the playoff race.Perez hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning of the Angels’ 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Perez came into the game with just one hit in 16 at-bats in nine games. He spent almost the entire season at Triple-A, losing playing time to Martin Maldonado and Juan Graterol. With the loss, the Angels fell to 78-81, ensuring that they can’t have a winning season. They need to win all three of their remaining games to avoid the first consecutive losing seasons since Scioscia took over in 2000. The last time the Angels had consecutive losing seasons was 1992-94. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Manager Mike Scioscia said shortstop Cliff Pennington, the cutoff man on that play, was lined up toward home, as he should have been, and Revere simply threw the ball to the wrong place.“You throw the ball wherever the cutoff man is,” Scioscia said. “Penny was lined up right, where he should have been. That long unprotected throw got us tonight.” Perez also handled seven pitchers, as the Angels used a corps of relievers to work the game. Bud Norris started and pitched three scoreless innings, followed by Jose Alvarez, Noé Ramirez, Blake Wood, Eduardo Paredes, Fernando Salas and Jesse Chavez.Chavez entered with the Angels leading, 4-2, but he gave up two runs on a homer by Rob Brantly. Tim Anderson then singled. Anderson was running on a 3-and-2 pitch when Rymer Liriano singled into left. Anderson never slowed down and came all the way around to score the go-ahead run, as left fielder Ben Revere casually threw the ball in to second.Related Articleslast_img
