|Viciedo's Triple Leads White Sox Over Astros 4-2
|HOUSTON (AP) -- Dayan Viciedo's bases-loaded triple in a four-run sixth inning sent the Chicago White Sox to a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for the White Sox and allowed them to avoid being swept in a four-game series for the first time since 2008.
Chicago trailed 2-0 before Alejandro De Aza singled in the sixth and went to third on Adam Dunn's two-out single. Paul Konerko pulled Chicago to 2-1 with an RBI single that went between the legs of starter Bud Norris and into center field.
Conor Gillaspie barely beat the throw to first on a single that loaded the bases. That brought up Viciedo, whose triple landed on Tal's Hill in center field just out of the reach of a diving Brandon Barnes. That sent all three runners home to put Chicago up 4-2.
