CHICAGO (AP) — John Danks pitched seven scoreless innings and Jose Abreu hit a home run, leading the Chicago White Sox past the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 on Friday night.
The White Sox have won seven of their last 11 games after losing a season-high eight straight.
Danks (4-8) was impressive after getting skipped in the rotation. The left-hander allowed five hits with five strikeouts and two walks. He was 0-4 in his previous four starts with a 6.85 ERA.
Jake Petricka pitched a perfect eighth and David Robertson struck out the side in the ninth for his 17th save in 21 chances.
Baltimore has lost four of its last five games. Adam Jones continued to struggle against Danks, going 0 for 3 on Friday, now making him 1 for 33 overall against Danks.
