|Trout Homers as Angels Top White Sox 3-2
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Mike Trout hit a two-run homer and Jerome Williams pitched into the seventh inning to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Saturday night.
Williams (2-1) allowed two runs and scattered seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out three and walked one. After eight appearances out of the bullpen, Williams made his second start after he replaced the struggling Garrett Richards, who was filling in for injured Los Angeles ace Jered Weaver.
Williams wore a pink glove in honor of his mother Deborah, who died of breast cancer 12 years ago. It was his first win as a starter since June 1, 2012 against the Rangers.
Scott Downs got one out in the seventh, Richards pitched a perfect eighth and Ernesto Frieri pitched a scoreless ninth for his seventh save in eight chances.
Jose Quintana (2-1) allowed three runs in the loss.
