White Sox Ready for Cubs After Beating Diamondbacks
PHOENIX (AP) -- Phil Humber pitched effectively into the eighth inning, Paul Konerko homered for the third straight game and A.J. Pierzynski hit a three-run double to lift the Chicago White Sox to an 8-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Konerko hit a solo homer to match Harold Baines for 56th on the career list with 384, Alex Rios added a solo shot off Josh Collmenter (4-3) and Alexei Ramirez drove in two on a pair of groundouts. Pierzynski capped a five-run eighth inning with his bases-clearing double, sending Humber (7-3) to his fourth straight win.

Chicago took two of three in the desert to win its first series over Arizona in three tries, a good way to head into a three-game series against the crosstown rival Cubs that starts Monday.
