Danks Solid as White Sox Beats Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- John Danks pitched shutout ball into the seventh for his first win in nearly a month and Dayan Viciedo, A.J. Pierzynski and Adam Dunn homered as the Chicago White Sox beat the Cubs 7-4 on Saturday night.

The White Sox made it two in a row over the Cubs and played without star first baseman Paul Konerko, who'd been hit near the left eye with a pitch Friday and had to leave the game. Konerko had a shiner Saturday, but tests revealed no major damage and he hopes to play again Tuesday.

Danks (3-4) got his first win since April 22, allowing three hits in 6 1/3 innings. It was his third career start at Wrigley Field, where he has allowed just two earned runs in 19 1/3 innings and is 2-0.

Ryan Dempster (0-2) took the loss.
