CHICAGO (AP) — Alexei Ramirez homered and drove in a career-high five runs, and the suddenly surging Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3 on Sunday.

Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the first inning, then added an RBI double in the third, a run-scoring single in the fourth and another RBI double in the eighth for the White Sox, who have won 11 of 15. By taking two of three games against the Dodgers over the weekend, Chicago is now 5-0-1 in its last six series.

White Sox starter Edwin Jackson (4-5) improved to 2-2 with a 2.84 ERA at home this season. Jackson went 5 2-3 innings, allowing one run on five hits, walking two and striking out seven.
