White Sox Rout Atlanta, Hanson for Seventh Straight Victory
CHICAGO (AP) -- John Danks settled down after a shaky start to outpitch a Tommy Hanson as the Chicago White Sox won their seventh straight game, 9-6 over the Atlanta Braves Tuesday night.

In snapping Atlanta's five-game winning streak, the White Sox won for the 11th time in 12 games. They improved to 35-34, the first time they have been over .500 since they were 1-0.

Chicago had 13 of its season-high 16 hits during Hanson's 3 2-3 innings. Carlos Quentin's three-run homer put the White Sox up 9-3 in the fourth.

Danks (7-5) spotted Atlanta a 3-0 lead before retiring 15 of the last 18 batters he faced.

Hanson (7-4) surrendered a career-high nine runs as his personal four-game winning streak ended.
