ANAHEIM, Calif.  — Jered Weaver pitched five-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Carlos Perez homered in the Los Angeles Angels’ third straight victory over the Chicago White Sox, 1-0 Wednesday night.

Weaver (5-9) earned his first victory since May 30, striking out five without a walk in his third start back from a seven-week injury absence. The Angels’ longtime ace showed command and deception that made up for his velocity, and eventually left to a standing ovation.

Perez delivered the game’s only run with his third homer of the season — and first since May 30 — in the sixth.

The game ended after a 3 1/2-minute video review determined reliever Joe Smith had touched the bag while covering first base on a double play. Pinch-hitter Adam LaRoche initially was called safe.

Jeff Samardzija (8-9) yielded eight hits over seven solid innings for the White Sox, who have lost five of six.
