Court hits 2-run single in 8th to lift Diamondbacks to 4-2 win over White Sox

Ryan Court hit a tiebreaking two-run single against Dylan Axelrod in the eighth inning to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.

Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy gave up 10 hits but only two runs over six innings. McCarthy allowed a home run to Jordan Danks, who continued his torrid pace with two hits. After a horrendous start, Danks has 12 hits in his last 17 at-bats, although he remains a long shot to make the Opening Day roster.

Jeff Keppinger was 2 for 2 and is 14 for 28 this spring for the White Sox.

A.J. Pollock homered against White Sox starter Gavin Floyd leading off the second inning. Floyd allowed two runs and seven hits over five innings.
