CHICAGO  — Mike Trout hit a two-run homer and reached base four times, helping back Jered Weaver as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 Thursday to close a 10-game trip.

Melky Cabrera’s solo homer in the seventh was the lone run off Weaver (1-1), who allowed three hits in seven innings despite velocity that topped out at 85 mph.

Trout connected on a fastball from John Danks (0-3), driving the ball 419 feet to left-center with two outs in the fifth — he has been 0 for 8 with four strikeouts against Danks. Trout also singled and walked twice.
