Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight night and Paul Konerko had a big three-run double, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.

Jose Abreu collected three more hits as the White Sox roughed up Travis Wood on their way to their fourth straight win, extending their season-best streak. The rookie slugger doubled twice to run his major league-best total to 24 extra-base hits.

The White Sox also got a nice game from shortstop Alexei Ramirez, who singled in a run in the first and made a terrific over-the-shoulder catch to rob Welington Castillo of a hit in the ninth. Ramirez then threw to first to double off Starlin Castro for the second out.
