Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Conor Gillaspie hit the tie-breaking two-run homer among his three hits and scored twice, as Chicago claimed an 8-3 victory over Boston in the second edition of a four-game series from Fenway Park.
Jose Abreu finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and scored once for the White Sox, winners of three straight and five of their last six.
Alejandro De Aza added a pair of hits and drove in two to back 5 2/3 innings from John Danks (8-6), who yielded eight hits and three runs despite four walks.
Mike Napoli collected three hits, scored once and drove in a run for the Red Sox, who have seven of their last eight games. Dustin Pedroia contributed two hits, an RBI and run scored in the setback.
Brandon Workman (1-3) gave up eight hits and five runs -- three earned -- in his losing seven-inning stint.
Abreu's single began the White Sox sixth, then after Adam Dunn fanned looking, Gillaspie put Chicago ahead to stay when he wrapped a ball around the Pesky Pole in right to give the visitors a 5-3 edge.
Dayan Viciedo walked to start the ninth and his pinch runner, Moises Sierra, moved to second on Burke Badenhop's wild pick-off throw and scored on a De Aza triple to center. Gordon Beckham's double off Craig Breslow scored De Aza and the ChiSox led 7-3. Abreu was then given a free pass, then Paul Konerko struck a pinch-hit RBI ground-rule double to complete the three-run frame.
Eric Surkamp worked around a Pedroia single in a scoreless bottom of the ninth.
In the second, Chicago loaded the bases with none out on a walk to Dunn and singles from Alexei Ramirez and Gillaspie, then Dunn scored on Napoli's error and Ramirez came in on a De Aza double-play grounder.
Gillaspie doubled with one away in the fourth and came home on De Aza's two- out single, but the hosts tied the score in the fifth. Brock Holt started with a triple and came home when Pedroia followed with a double. Napoli doubled to left to score Pedroia two batters later, and after a Jonny Gomes base hit left runners on the corners, Xander Bogaerts dumped a single to left for a 3-3 game.
Chicago finished 5-for-16 with runners in scoring position and left six, while Boston was 4-for-11 with RISP and stranded nine ... The White Sox improved to 10-9 at Fenway Park since 2009.
