ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jeff Keppinger walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go-ahead run – his first base on balls in 141 plate appearances this season – and the Chicago White Sox rallied with three runs in the eighth to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on Thursday night for their season-high third straight road win.

The Angels' bullpen wasted a two-run lead as the club lost its second straight and dropped to 8-12 at home.

Matt Lindstrom (2-2) got the victory after facing one batter in the seventh, getting Mike Trout to fly out to right to end the inning.

Addison Reed pitched the ninth to earn his 13th save in 14 chances.

Dane Del La Rosa (1-1) took the loss, giving up all three runs in the eighth.
