Sale Throws 1-Hitter as White Sox Beat Angels 3-0
CHICAGO (AP)--Chris Sale pitched a one-hitter after being perfect into the seventh inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 on Sunday night to avoid a three-game sweep.

Mike Trout's sharp single to center broke up the perfect game with one out in the seventh, on Sale's 70th pitch.

Sale (4-2) struck out seven on just 98 pitches for his first career shutout and third consecutive win. Sale's one-hitter is Chicago's first since Zach Stewart had one on Sept. 5, 2011 at Minnesota.

Alexei Ramirez's two-run two-out single drove in Tyler Flowers and Tyler Greene to give Sale the lead and chase Los Angeles' C.J. Wilson (3-2). Alex Rios then doubled off reliever Michael Kohn to drive in Ramirez, who had three hits and scored a run.
