(Newser) – Vladimir Guerrero homered and drove in four runs, Nick Adenhart recorded his first major league victory and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 10-7 on Monday night to snap a four-game losing streak. Adenhart (1-0) allowed four runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings, walking three and striking out one.

It was the third start for the 21-year-old right-hander, who has given up 12 earned runs, 18 hits and 13 walks over 12 innings while filling in John Lackey. Lackey, who won 18 games last season for the defending AL West champions, is expected to make his season debut Wednesday night after being sidelined since March 21 with a strained right triceps.
