CHICAGO (AP) - Jordan Danks homered after replacing the injured Avisail Garcia, backing a solid start by his brother John and helping the surging Chicago White Sox beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 on Sunday.
The White Sox took two of three from the AL West leaders, giving them eight victories in their last nine games.
Josh Phegley went deep after hitting the winning single in the ninth inning the previous night. John Danks (4-10) outpitched Matt Garza (3-2), allowing two runs over six innings for his second straight win.
A rare bright spot in a miserable season for Chicago was tempered by Garcia crashing into the right-field fence and slowly walking off the field.
