CHICAGO – Kole Calhoun homered and scored twice as the Los Angeles Angels held off the White Sox, 7-5, to complete a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday night.

Howie Kendrick added two hits and scored two runs as the Angels won their second straight and moved to within 3 1/2 games of first-place Oakland in the AL West.

The Angels beat the Sox, 8-4, in the opener of a twin-bill quickly arranged after Monday's game was rained out and are now 5-0 against the Sox this season.

Jered Weaver (9-6) worked 5 2/3 innings for the win, allowing nine hits while striking out six. Sox starter Scott Carroll (2-5) took the loss after pitching six-plus innings and giving up seven runs on 10 hits.
