Recap


White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale carried a perfect game into the seventh inning and Alexei Ramirez broke up a scoreless deadlock with a two-run single as host Chicago avoided a three-game sweep.

Sale (4-2) tossed his first career shutout in winning his third straight decision, allowing one hit while striking out seven and not walking a batter as the White Sox snapped Los Angeles' three-game winning streak.

Mike Trout ended Sale's bid to throw the 24th game in major-league history with a clean single to center with one out in the seventh. The Angels put the lead runner aboard on an error in the ninth, but Sale induced a double-play grounder before wrapping up his second career complete game.

The White Sox broke through against C.J. Wilson (3-2) in the seventh when Tyler Flowers walked and Tyler Greene singled with one out. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch and scored when Ramirez ripped a single past a diving shortstop Brendan Harris.

Michael Kohn relieved Wilson and was greeted by Alex Rios' double down the left-field line that plated Ramirez. Wilson was charged with three runs on six hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The 19 consecutive batters retired by Sale was a season high for a Chicago starter - one more than Jose Quintana. ... Angels RF Josh Hamilton had his second assist of the series, throwing out Casper Wells at the plate in the second inning. ... The Angels return home to open a three-game series against Kansas City on Monday while the White Sox will kick off a seven-game road trip with three games in Minnesota.
