CHICAGO — Andrew Heaney provided impressive bookends to the Angels’ 10-game trip.

Heaney struck out a career-high 12 over seven innings in the Angels’ 1-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday afternoon, after working six scoreless innings to get the victory in the trip’s opener last week in Houston.

Heaney, who lowered his ERA to 3.98, gave up three singles and he did not walk a batter, making for one of the best of his 56 career starts.

He and Reynaldo Lopez were locked in a duel for six innings, with Lopez striking out 10, before the Angels finally got the game’s only run against the White Sox bullpen in the seventh.

José Fernandez led off the inning with a single and eventually scored on a two-out hit by Kole Calhoun, against lefty Caleb Frere.

The run was all the Angels needed to finish the sweep of the White Sox and go 7-3 on the trip. They improved to 71-72, as they try to avoid a third straight losing season.

Heaney gave up a leadoff single to start the game, but that runner was erased on a double play to end the inning. Heaney retired all nine hitters over the next three innings, including seven strikeouts.

The next hitter to reach base against him was on … a strikeout. Matt Davidson whiffed but got to first when the ball got away from catcher José Briceño.

The White Sox put two runners on that inning, but Heaney escaped with … a strikeout of Adam Engel.

Heaney worked around another leadoff single in the seventh, recording his final strikeout, of Ryan LaMarre, to end the inning.

Ty Buttrey worked the eighth, escaping with the help of a run-saving sliding catch by Justin Upton in left field. Buttrey has now allowed one run in his first 10-1/3 innings since the Angels got him in the Ian Kinsler trade.

Blake Parker got the first two outs of the ninth, but he gave up a hit and hit a batter. José Álvarez got the final out, stranding two runners, to pick up his first save in his league-leading 71st appearance.
