|Danks Helps White Sox Squeeze Angels
|ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- John Danks pitched eight impressive innings, Manny Ramirez capped a four-run third with an RBI double and Juan Pierre pushed across a run with a suicide squeeze, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.
Danks (14-11) allowed two runs and seven hits with five strikeouts to establish a career high for wins, surpassing his totals from 2008 and 2009. The left-hander's first victory since Sept. 4 ended a drought of 18 consecutive starts by White Sox pitchers without a win -- a franchise record that broke the previous mark of 15 in 1985. The rotation was 0-9 with a 6.45 ERA during that 18-game stretch.
