Sox Edge RangersThe White Sox got over on the Texas Rangers Saturday night, winning 3-2. John Danks led the charge for Chicago, pitching six innings and allowing only one run on four hits while striking out 10. Rangers starter Kevin Millwood kept paced with Danks until the sixth inning, when Jermaine Dye doubled home Carlos Quentin to make it 2-1 Sox. Texas quickly evened the score in the top of the seventh against reliever Matt Thornton, but Chicago countered in the eighth with a bases-loaded sac fly from Paul Konerko to record the game-winning run on a close play at home. Scott Linebrink picked up the win with a timely appearance in the eighth and closer Bobby Jenks earned his seventh save of the season. At the plate Dye and Quentin both finished 2-for-3 with an RBI, helping the Sox beat the West's best team for the second time in five games. Chicago will try to split the season series with Texas this afternoon when Bartolo Colon takes the hill at 1:05.

Brewers Go Lights-Out on Cubs The power at Miller Park was diverted from the stadium's lights to the Brewers' bats on Saturday, as Milwaukee beat Chicago 12-6. Ryan Dempster kept the Brewers relatively quiet through the first six innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits, while Micah Hoffpauir provided the pop with a two-run homer in the fifth. Trailing 3-2 in the seventh, Dempster came unhinged, surrendering back-to-back solo shots to Rickie Weeks and Ryan Braun. The Cubs' bullpen could provide no relief, as Neal Cotts, David Patton, Chad Fox and Aaron Heilman were accountable for seven runs over the final two frames. Chicago tried to answer with an eighth-inning, four-run rally, but the Brew Crew kept piling it on offensively. To add injury to insult, Fox exited the game with a problem in his throwing elbow, with no timetable set for his return. Aramis Ramirez was placed on the 15-day D.L., and is expected to be out of action anywhere from four to twelve weeks. The Cubs will try to salvage a game against the surging Brewers this afternoon behind lefty Sean Marshall.
