SoCal native Reed grew up as Angels fan

LOS ANGELES -- A native of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., White Sox closer Addison Reed pitched in front of family and friends during the team's Interleague series against the Dodgers.

About 40 relatives and friends attended Friday's and Saturday's games at Dodger Stadium.

Reed grew up an Angels fan instead of a Dodgers supporter.

"I was pretty much an Angels fan until the day I was drafted by the White Sox," Reed said. "I was a diehard Angels fan. My dad and grandpa, everybody were Angels fans. I fell into that."

Reed's family and friends saw him improve to 8-for-8 in save chances in Saturday's 5-4 victory over the Dodgers.

"I'm having fun with it," Reed said. "It's something I've always wanted to do and I'm getting the opportunity."
