ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Trout and Albert Pujols drove in two runs apiece, Jered Weaver pitched seven strong innings, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a perfect homestand with a 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.

Pujols had three hits and Josh Hamilton drove in a run to help the Angels win their sixth straight and move a season-best 11 games over .500 (44-33). Trout had two doubles, including a two-run drive down the left-field line in the seventh.

The Angels have won 15 of 17 in Anaheim, where they have the majors’ best home record. Los Angeles swept Texas and Minnesota to complete its first unbeaten homestand with at least six games since May 2004.

Weaver (8-6) yielded eight hits - all singles - and struck out six to improve to 7-0 in eight career starts against Minnesota. The right-hander, who threw a no-hitter against Minnesota in 2012, has given up one run in 24 innings while striking out 24 in his last three home meetings with the Twins.

Joe Mauer hit a three-run double with two outs in the ninth for Minnesota.

Ricky Nolasco (4-6) was the loser.

BLUE JAYS 7, WHITE SOX 0

TORONTO (AP) - Adam Lind had three hits and three RBIs, and J.A. Happ pitched a season-high 7 2-3 innings in Toronto’s shutout of Chicago.

Jose Reyes had four hits and scored twice as the AL East leaders handed the struggling White Sox their seventh loss in eight games. Chicago lost for the 10th time in 11 road games.

Happ (7-4) allowed four hits and won for the third time in five starts. The left-hander struck out a season-high eight.

Chicago center fielder Adam Eaton left in the first inning with cramps in his left leg.

Starting for the first time since May 19, White Sox right-hander Scott Carroll (2-4) gave up five runs and nine hits in five innings.
