Homers allow White Sox to edge Rays
Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Tyler Greene hit a two-run homer and Hector Gimenez and Conor Gillaspie both added solo shots as the Chicago White Sox edged the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-4, in the second installment of a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field.
Adam Dunn added a pair of hits and drove in a run for the White Sox, who have won three straight.
Chicago starter Jake Peavy (3-1) allowed three runs on six hits -- including two homers -- while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings. Addison Reed gave up one run in the ninth, but stranded a pair of baserunners to seal the win and record his eighth save of the season.
Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria both homered for the Rays, losers in three of their last four, while Kelly Johnson added an RBI.
Roberto Hernandez (1-4) allowed all five Chicago runs on eight hits over six innings to absorb the loss.
