Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chris Sale struck out seven during a one-hit shutout on Sunday, as the Chicago White Sox blanked the LA Angels of Anaheim, 3-0, to salvage the finale of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.
Sale (4-2) was nearly perfect, allowing just one hit on a clean single up the middle from Mike Trout with one away in the seventh inning.
Chris Iannetta was the only other Angel to reach base on an error to start the ninth, but the lanky left-hander bounced back by inducing a double-play groundout from Luis Jimenez before flying out Alberto Callaspo to secure his first career shutout and second complete game.
Alexei Ramirez recorded three hits, two RBI and a run scored, while Alex Rios added an RBI double to help the White Sox snap a four-game home skid.
C.J. Wilson (3-2) allowed all three runs on six hits and four walks over 6 2/3 frames to absorb the loss, which snapped LA's three-game winning streak.
