CHICAGO (AP) — Jordan Danks hit a clutch two-run single in Chicago’s three-run eighth inning, leading the White Sox to a 4-3 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

Danks finished with a career-high three hits as the White Sox won for the ninth time in 11 games, bouncing back from a difficult loss in the series opener. Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Avisail Garcia had two hits apiece.

Matt Dominguez had three hits and two RBIs for the Astros, who had won three of four. Dominguez and Chris Carter hit consecutive two-out homers off closer Addison Reed to give Houston a 10-8 victory on Monday night.
