GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chris Iannetta and Alberto Callaspo homered off White Sox starter Gavin Floyd, and Mark Trumbo drove in two runs with a double to help the Los Angeles Angels beat Chicago 11-5 on Monday.

Floyd, the team's No. 3 starter, allowed six runs and 10 hits over the first three innings before getting on track and pitching four scoreless frames. The right-hander was charged with seven runs and 13 hits in all over seven-plus innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Chicago played without right fielder Alex Rios, who went for a precautionary MRI on his lower back after missing a third straight game with stiffness. The White Sox said they expect him back in a few days.

Los Angeles held out scheduled starter Tommy Hanson, pitching him in an intrasquad game instead, and used eight pitchers.
