MLB: Chicago White Sox 6, LA Angels 1

ANAHEIM, Calif., May 17 (UPI) -- Chris Sale gave up a run over 5 1/3 innings Thursday and received solid relief help in leading the Chicago White Sox to a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

The only Los Angeles score came on a homer by Albert Pujols, his third of the year and his second in as many games.


Chicago, however, took advantage of six walks by C.J. Wilson (4-4), who gave up four runs on four hits in 3 2/3 innings to take the loss. Three of the runs allowed by Wilson were unearned.

Sale (4-2) surrendered five hits while striking out seven. Three relievers combined to give up one hit over the final 3 1/3 innings.

Adam Dunn had a two-run single during Chicago's three-run fourth and A.J. Pierzynski delivered an RBI single in both the third and ninth.

Los Angeles designated hitter Mark Trumbo went 4-for-4, but the Angels were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.
