White Sox Take Advantage of Konerko HR's
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Paul Konerko hit two home runs after the Chicago White Sox took advantage of a wild pitch, two errors and two walks to go ahead in a 7-5 victory Thursday over the Texas Rangers to avoid a three-game sweep.

Konerko leads the majors with 10 homers after hitting a solo drive in the eighth and a two-run shot in the ninth. He also drove in another run with a sacrifice fly.

Rangers starter Scott Feldman pitched into the seventh with a two-run lead, but was gone after an error and a walk against the first two batters. Darren O'Day (0-1) gave up an RBI single to A.J. Pierzynski and a walk to load the bases before Dustin Nippert threw a wild pitch that allowed the White Sox to score the tying and go-ahead runs.
