White Sox take 1st game against Twins

Gordon Beckham hit a home run and had two RBIs as John Danks recovered from his worst inning of the season to help the Chicago White Sox win their ninth game in a row, 8-7 over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
Danks (9-7) gave up six runs on six hits in the second inning, but only allowed three hits in his other five scoreless innings and the White Sox did all the little things right to push the slumping Twins 4 1/2 games behind them in the AL Central.
Bobby Jenks picked up his 20th save in 21 chances. He struck out Orlando Hudson with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, then gave up an RBI-single to Delmon Young in the ninth before getting Jim Thome looking to end the game.
Chicago perfectly executed four hit-and-runs, bunted runners over and played superb defense for their 26th win in the last 31 games.
Rangers 7, Red Sox 2
At Boston, Josh Hamilton had three doubles to take over the major league batting lead and help Texas get off to a quick start in the second half by beating Boston.
Hamilton improved his average to .351 before leaving in the seventh inning with soreness in his right knee.
Nelson Cruz and Vladimir Guerrero also had three hits, and Bengie Molina homered in the six-run first inning to help the Rangers halt a four-game losing streak. Tommy Hunter (6-0) held Boston to five hits before leaving with a 7-2 lead with two outs in the seventh.
J.D. Drew and Bill Hall homered for Boston, which has lost six of its last eight games.
