The Los Angeles Angels' latest funk began the last time they saw Chris Sale, whose dominant performance helped get the light-hitting Chicago White Sox on the right track.

Sale takes the mound again as visiting Chicago seeks a season-best fourth straight victory Friday night against struggling Los Angeles.

The Angels had won the first two of last weekend's series in Chicago, but Sale (4-2, 2.88 ERA) took a perfect game into the seventh inning and finished with a one-hitter in the White Sox's 3-0 victory Sunday.

The only hitter to reach base was Mike Trout, whose one-out single in the seventh inning ended the perfect game.

"Honestly, I didn't wake up and say, 'I want to throw a perfect game or a no-hitter,'" Sale said. "I come to the ballpark every day when I'm pitching and just want to keep my team in the game. That's the most important part at the end of the day."

Sale has gone 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA over his last four starts, striking out at least seven three times with opponents hitting .160 against him. He's 2-0 with a 0.55 ERA in two starts and two relief appearances in his career versus the Angels.

C.J. Wilson matched zeros with Sale through six innings Sunday before giving up three runs in the seventh. He also walked four, marking the fifth time in eight starts he's walked at least that many.
"It was a really well-pitched game," Wilson said. "And Sale just had video-game stuff."

Wilson (3-2, 3.88), who has lost his last two starts, will again oppose Sale. He's 2-2 with a 2.78 ERA in four career starts versus the White Sox, though he's walked 10 over his last two against them.
