Danks Blanks Angels
CHICAGO (AP) -- John Danks held the Angels hitless for six innings before finishing with a two-hitter Thursday, and the surging Chicago White Sox beat Los Angeles 1-0 for a four-game sweep and their 22nd victory in 27 games.

Danks (8-7) gave up a leadoff single to Reggie Willits in the seventh, stopping his bid for the fifth no-hitter in the big leagues this season. But after yielding another single, he pitched out of trouble and got his first major league shutout.

Stepping up just a day after the White Sox learned they might be without ace Jake Peavy for the rest of the season, Danks, whose previous low-hit performance was a three-hitter last September against the Indians -- his only other complete game -- worked quickly and was in control of his pitches from the outset.
