CHICAGO Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie homered while John Danks pitched into the eighth inning to help the Chicago White Sox snap the Baltimore Orioles' four-game winning streak with a 5-2 victory Tuesday night.
Chicago ended a five-game losing streak of its own and avoided falling a season-high 16 games below .500.
John Danks (2-5) earned his first win since June 8 against Oakland, pitching seven-plus innings and allowing two runs and six hits while striking out four. Since then, Danks had been winless in three starts while allowing 13 earned runs.
Gillaspie's homer snapped a 1-1 tie in the sixth, and Dunn's 22nd, a two-run homer in the seventh, gave Chicago a 5-1 lead. Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save in 26 attempts.
