ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jason Vargas kept throwing strikes and catcher Chris Iannetta kept taking walks — a winning formula for the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Vargas scattered four hits through seven scoreless innings and Iannetta drew two more walks in a 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

The middle of the Chicago lineup — Alex Rios, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko — was a combined 0 for 8 against Vargas (3-3), who was acquired in an offseason trade for Kendry Morales with the Mariners.

"When you've got three guys like that in a lineup, the biggest key is just to try and keep guys off base when they come up to the plate because it limits the damage that they're able to do," Vargas said. "When you can do that, you have more confidence in what you can go about doing with them, and there's more room for error."

Iannetta's second base on balls was his 14th in a span of 33 plate appearances. He walked four times on Saturday and has 27 walks overall, just two fewer than he had all last season. His career high is 70, with Colorado in 2011.

MINNEAPOLIS — A three-hour rain delay at Target Field lasted long enough for Twins fans to watch the movie "The Sandlot" in its entirety on the videoboard. Several cast and crew members were at the stadium to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary.

The Twins-Red Sox game resumed about 80 minutes after the movie ended.

Note

• Texas put 2B Ian Kinsler (bruised ribs) on the disabled list and recalled top prospect Jurickson Profar.
