White Sox Beat Marlins to Complete Sweep
CHICAGO (AP) -- Dayan Viciedo and Alex Rios each threw out a runner at the plate, and the Chicago White Sox beat Alex Sanabia and the Miami Marlins 5-3 on Sunday to sweep their weekend series.

The White Sox have won five of six and nine of 12 to climb back to .500 for the first time since they were 4-4 on April 10. Dylan Axelrod (3-3) benefited from a two-run homer by Adam Dunn and a tiebreaking two-run double from Alejandro De Aza to pick up his third consecutive victory.

Sanabia returned to the mound for the first time since cameras caught him spitting on the ball during a start against Philadelphia last Monday. He said he didn't know it was illegal, and it looks as if Major League Baseball has no plans to discipline the 24-year-old right-hander.
