Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com)  - Kole Calhoun hit a two-run home run as the 
LA  Angels of  Anaheim completed a doubleheader sweep of the Chicago White So
with a 7-5 win on Tuesday. 

Howie  Kendrick went 2-for-3  with two RBI and two runs scored for the Angels, 
who have won nine of their last 11 games. 

Jered  Weaver (9-6) allowed  five runs on nine hits with six strikeouts over 5 
2/3 innings to win his second straight start. 

"The  story  of the  night was the  offense, kept scoring  and picking me up," 
Weaver said. 

Conor  Gillaspie and  Dayan Viciedo each hit two-run homers for the White Sox, 
who  have dropped the first two of this three-game set after winning the final 
three of a four-game series against Toronto. 

Scott  Carroll (2-5) was touched for seven runs on 10 hits in six-plus innings 
of work as he dropped his second consecutive start. 

"I'm  going to continue to work hard and try and be better next time," Carroll 
said. 

In the earlier game, Mike Trout hit a three-run home run to help the Angels to 
an 8-4 victory. 

The  Angels drew first  blood in the nightcap in the second inning as Kendrick 
singled home a run and C.J. Cron followed suit with an RBI single. Two batters 
later, a Grant Green groundout brought home another run for a 3-0 lead. 

Chicago got back within one in the second as Alexei Ramirez was hit by a pitch 
and Gillaspie followed with his first home run of the season. 

Calhoun launched a two-run shot of his own in the fifth with Green on base for 
a 5-2 advantage. 

The  sixth inning saw the Angels get another run as Kendrick singled, moved to 
second on a wild pitch and scored on a Hank Conger single. 

Chicago  made it  a one-run game in  the sixth as Ramirez doubled with one out 
and  scored  on Gillaspie's single  to right.  Viciedo followed with his ninth 
home run of the season for a 6-5 game. Rich Hill, acquired in a trade with the 
Red Sox earlier in  the day, fanned Leury Garcia to strand two runners to cap 
the inning. 

Kendrick worked a walk with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to force in 
a run and give the Angels a 7-5 lead. 

Kevin Jepsen and Jason Grilli each faced the minimum over an inning of work in 
the  seventh and  eighth, while Joe Smith  pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his ninth 
save of the season.
