|White Sox Beat Twins to Tie for First
|CHICAGO (AP) -- John Danks pitched eight sharp innings and the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 6-1 on Wednesday night to move back into a first-place tie in the AL Central with the Twins.
Carlos Quentin homered in his second straight game while helping the White Sox draw even again after being knocked out of first place for the first time since July 10 with a 12-6 loss to the Twins on Tuesday.
They fared better this time after dropping four of five, with a rare victory over a team that had won 18 of 23 against them.
Danks (12-8) allowed one run and six hits. Quentin hit a two-run shot in the second off Glen Perkins (0-1) that made it 2-0, and the White Sox continued to pile on from there, taking advantage of two throwing errors that helped set up runs on their way to an easy win.
