PHOENIX (AP) - The Chicago White Sox are still looking for their leadoff batter.

Manager Ozzie Guillen said he and his staff spent “hours” discussing the subject before DeWayne Wise went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in that spot for the White Sox in a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.

Other than Wise, the White Sox are considering Jerry Owens for the top spot in the lineup. Both players are also competing for the starting center field job. Another possibility is second baseman Chris Gets, who went 2-for-3 to raise his average to .364.

Angels pitcher Dustin Moseley shut down the White Sox, allowing four hits, striking out four and walking one in five innings.
