White gets 1st career win, Indians beat Angels 4-3

Sunday, May 8, 2011

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) ? Alex White pitched six gritty innings for his first major league win, Shin-Soo Choo drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a double that snapped an 0-for-18 drought since his arrest on DUI charges, and the Cleveland Indians beat Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Saturday night.

White (0-1) allowed three runs and seven hits, including a two-run homer by Vernon Wells, in his second major league start. He struck out six and walked two.

The 22-year-old right-hander was the 15th overall pick in the 2009 draft and was the Indians' minor league pitcher of the year last season. Last Saturday in his big league debut, White gave up two runs over six innings in a no-decision as the Indians beat Detroit 3-2 in 13.
