Recap: LA Angels vs. Chicago WSox

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Adam Dunn and A.J. Pierzynski each knocked in two runs to help the Chicago White Sox beat the LA Angels of Anaheim, 6-1, in the final test of a two-game series.

Dayan Viciedo hit a solo homer for the White Sox, who bounced back from a 7-2 loss in the opener of this brief set on Wednesday. Paul Konerko drove in a run and scored a run.

Chris Sale (4-2) allowed one run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings to pick up the win. He struck out seven and walked one.

"We continued to put pressure on them today," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "We had good at-bats and Chris has been good for us."

Albert Pujols hit a solo homer for the Angels, who had a two-game winning streak snapped.

C.J. Wilson (4-4) gave up four runs -- one earned -- on four hits over 3 2/3 frames. He walked six and fanned three.

"We'll turn the page on this one," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "C.J. had trouble putting pitches in the zone. He started to feel a little under the weather as the game went on."

The White Sox broke a scoreless tie in the third inning. Konerko worked a two-out walk, moved to second on Alex Rios' single and crossed the plate on Pierzynski's base hit to right. Pierzynski was tagged out while trying to reach second.

The visitors added three more runs in the fourth. With one out, Viciedo hit a routine fly ball to right fielder Mike Trout, who dropped the ball. Brent Morel and Alejandro De Aza followed with walks to load the bases. Two batters later, Dunn hit a two-run single to right-center field. David Carpenter came in from the bullpen and Konerko greeted him with an RBI single to shallow right field.

Pujols' third homer of the season in the sixth made it a 4-1 game.

But Viciedo hit a solo homer of his own in the eighth to give Chicago a four- run margin again.

Pierzynski added an RBI single in the ninth to account for the final margin.
