Nix Hits First Grand Slam in White Sox Win
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Jayson Nix hit his first career grand slam, helping the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-5 on Sunday to split a four-game series with the AL East-leaders.

Nix put the White Sox up 7-3 on his homer in the sixth. He replaced Mark Teahen, who left in the fourth with a right middle finger injury, at third base.

Ben Zobrist homered and had two RBIs for the Rays, who went 2-5 on a seven-game homestand. Tampa Bay, with the major's best record (34-17), is just 15-12 at home.
