Dodgers Rally for 7-6 Victory Against White Sox
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- James Loney scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by Matt Thornton in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 7-6 on Friday night in the opener of an interleague series between division leaders.

Alex Rios hit his second homer of the game in the top half of the eighth, but the Dodgers went in front again in the bottom half.

Loney started the winning rally with a one-out single against Thornton (2-4). Dee Gordon walked and Elian Herrera grounded into a fielder's choice, putting runners at the corners. Bobby Abreu batted for Ronald Belisario (2-0) and Gordon took off for second as Thornton's first pitch to Abreu bounced past A.J. Pierzynski.
