Angels' protest of 8-6 loss at White Sox denied

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball has denied the Los Angeles Angels' protest of their 8-6, 10-inning loss at the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

The decision by MLB executive vice president Joe Torre was announced Monday.

Chicago's Paul Konerko grounded to third with the bases loaded and no outs in the first inning. After getting an out at home, catcher Chris Iannetta fired wide to first, pulling Albert Pujols off the bag.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia argued that Konerko was not within the baseline for the last 45 feet, as is required, but umpires upheld the safe call and Scioscia protested. A.J. Pierzynski hit a three-run homer with two outs for a 4-1 lead.
