ANAHEIM, Calif. – Chris Sale stifled the Los Angeles Angels' bats for the second time in six days, scattering three hits over 7 2/3 innings with a season-high 12 strikeouts Friday night to lead the White Sox to a 3-0 victory.

Alex Rios and Adam Dunn homered for the White Sox, who extended their winning streak to a season-high four games.

Sale (5-2) threw 79 of his 113 pitches for strikes in another competitive duel with fellow lefty C.J. Wilson, whom he beat 3-0 last Sunday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his 14th save in 15 chances.

Wilson (3-3) lost his third straight start, allowing two runs and six hits over seven innings.
