John Danks and three relievers combined on a three-hitter, Leury Garcia hit his first major league home run and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Wednesday in the rubber game of a three-game series.

Danks (4-5) allowed only two hits and one run and struck out five for his first road win in more than six weeks. He entered the game 1-3 with a 6.83 ERA in five road starts this season. He also had an infield single in the sixth inning, just his second hit in 28 career plate appearances.

Garcia led off the third with a homer and Adam Dunn homered to lead off the fourth.

Josh Beckett (3-3) took the loss for the Dodgers, who have lost six of their last eight.
