Danks' Gem Helps White Sox Beat Tigers
CHICAGO (AP) -- John Danks pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, Omar Vizquel homered and had a suicide-squeeze bunt, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 Thursday.

A.J. Pierzynski also homered for the White Sox, who have won two straight games, just their fourth winning streak of any kind this season.

The only hit off Danks (5-5) was Carlos Guillen's second-inning single. A pair of relievers finished the combined three-hitter, with Bobby Jenks getting his 10th save.

Vizquel connected for his first home run since last Aug. 7. It was the 2,724th hit for the 43-year-old infielder, tying Roberto Alomar for 54th on the career list.
