If shortstop Alexei Ramirez returns Friday after missing seven games with a sprained ankle, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said the second-year player would bat low in the order because Beckham has excelled as the No. 2 hitter. ... The four homers gave the Angels 74 in their last 48 games after hitting only 44 in their first 58 contests. Not coincidentally, they are 35-13 during their hot streak after a 29-29 start.
