White Sox Pound Oswalt and Rangers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Kevin Youkilis, Adam Dunn and Alex Rios homered in the first inning off Roy Oswalt and All-Star Chris Sale won his 10th game Tuesday night and the Chicago White Sox routed the Texas Rangers 19-2.

Playing in his first home game with the White Sox since his trade from Boston on June 24, Youkilis had three hits and drove in four runs in a meeting of division leaders that saw Chicago score its most runs this season.

A.J. Pierzynski, not chosen for the AL All-Star team managed by Texas' skipper Ron Washington, hit a three-run homer off reliever Yoshinori Tateyama -- his 15th of the season -- to cap a nine-run fifth inning and make it 16-0. Seven of the runs in the inning were unearned, thanks to an error on Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler.

Sale (10-2) is 7-0 in his past nine starts and hasn't lost since May 12.
