The Los Angeles Angels were nothing short of brilliant against the Chicago White Sox in their 9-3 win on Thursday.

Luis Rengifo and Jose Rojas hit home runs, and the Angels were so dominant that they had a 9-0 lead by the fifth inning.

Los Angeles manager Joe Maddon was thrilled with his team’s performance.

“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” Maddon said. “I’ve said it 1,001 times: this team comes to play every day. Their prep is outstanding. Their work is superior. They care. From the first pitch, they are locked in. So I’m not surprised.”

Angels pitcher Alex Cobb threw five scoreless innings with 66 pitches in his first game after two months out with a wrist injury.

“Totally surprising,” Cobb said. “I definitely was expecting to compete and do well, but I didn’t think I’d go that deep in the game. I definitely thought I’d probably be working a little bit harder. But the overall stuff I was really happy with.”

On the other hand, White Sox reliever Mike Wright was ejected for hitting Angels’ Shohei Ohtani in the calf with a pitch. Manager Tony La Russa was also sent off for arguing.

“We were funky,” La Russa said. “It looks bad to our pitcher and our team. It’s disappointing.”

The Los Angeles Angels are preparing for Friday night’s home series opener against Oakland while the White Sox open a three-game series at Texas.
