Elsewhere, third baseman Jhonny Peralta hit two homers for Detroit in his first game since being acquired from Cleveland. Matt Capps worked a scoreless ninth inning for a save in his first appearance with the Minnesota Twins after he was traded by the Washington Nationals the previous night.
The White Sox, trying to hold off the Twins in the AL Central, obtained Jackson from the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks for rookie pitcher Daniel Hudson and prospect David Holmberg.
An All-Star in 2009 with Detroit, Jackson tossed the second no-hitter in Diamondbacks history June 25 against Tampa Bay. His arrival gives Chicago a talented, though sometimes wild, addition to a solid rotation that is missing injured ace Jake Peavy.
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said Jackson is scheduled to start Wednesday at Detroit.
Kearns left Cleveland's game at Toronto in the seventh inning and will join the Yankees on Saturday. He is hitting .272 with eight homers and 42 RBIs.
"A corner outfielder that gives us depth and experience," New York manager Joe Girardi said. "A right-handed bat that has power. We can use him a lot of different ways. It will give me a chance to rest our left-handed guys."
Berkman, however, appeared to be the more significant move for New York, which has the best record in baseball (65-37) but only a one-game lead in the AL East over Tampa Bay.
The 34-year-old Berkman would fill the designated hitter slot originally intended for Nick Johnson, who has been on the disabled list since May 8 because of a right wrist injury that required surgery.
Berkman is hitting .245 with 13 homers and 49 RBIs. He has 60 walks and 70 strikeouts in 298 at-bats.
"I think it would be good for him," Oswalt said. "Sometimes you get a change of scenery, turns you all the way around. Sometimes you get in a rut of doing the same thing over and over again."
Berkman is making $14.5 million this year. His contract includes a team option for 2011 at $15 million with a $2 million buyout.
