RBI Single Helps White Sox Beat Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Juan Pierre tripled home the tying run and scored on Omar Vizquel's single in the seventh inning, leading the Chicago White Sox over the Los Angels 4-3 Sunday.

The White Sox have beaten the Angels seven straight times, their longest winning streak against them since a 10-game stretch in 1983-84.

Angels starter Jered Weaver (13-12) struck out nine and took over the major league strikeout lead with 229, two more than Seattle's Felix Hernandez.

Tony Pena (5-2) pitched six innings in his second big league start. He allowed three runs, all of them in the first inning.

Matt Thornton relieved Scott Linebrink after a leadoff single in the eighth and got six outs for his seventh save in nine tries.
