CHICAGO (AP) - John Danks pitched three-hit ball over eight innings for his first victory in more than a year, and the Chicago White Sox won for just the second time in 12 games, beating the surging Oakland Athletics 4-1 on Saturday.

Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko homered. Alex Rios drove in the go-ahead run, and the White Sox handed the Athletics just their fourth loss in 22 games.

Dunn connected leading off the second to tie the score at 1-all, and it stayed that way until the eighth.

Alejandro De Aza led off with an infield single against Sean Doolittle (3-1) and moved up on a sacrifice bunt by Alexei Ramirez before Rios broke the tie with a single to center. Konerko followed with a two-run drive to left to cap the rally.

That made a winner of Danks (1-2), who struck out six and walked one.
