    Chicago White Sox's Alejandro De Aza, left, gets a fist-bump from Alex Rios after hitting a solo home run in the first inning.

    Mike Trout had two hits, including the go-ahead single in the seventh inning, to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

    Hank Conger reached on Conor Gillaspie's error to start the inning and scored on Trout's sharp single to right off reliever Matt Lindstrom that gave the Angels a 6-5 lead. J.B. Shuck then scored on a passed ball.

    The Angels built a 5-1 lead after Brendan Harris homered in the fourth. He had three hits and scored twice. The White Sox rallied in the bottom half of the inning scoring four to tie it.

    Michael Kohn (1-0) pitched an inning of scoreless relief for the win. Ernesto Frieri allowed a leadoff walk to Alexei Ramirez in the ninth but struck out the side and picked up his sixth save in seven attempts.

    Chicago starter Dylan Axelrod (0-3) took the loss.
