Chicago's Dylan Axelrod matched his career high with eight strikeouts and yielded seven hits in 6 2-3 innings.
The Red Sox, who took two of three at Tampa Bay over the weekend, opened a seven-game homestand.
NOTES: Ortiz looked as if he was limping heading back to the dugout after Gonzalez's homer. ... White Sox LHP John Danks, out with a mild muscle strain in his shoulder, played long toss and was encouraged by the results. "I feel like I'm making progress," he said before the game. "(Tuesday) we're going to try doing the same, Wednesday off and Thursday push it back a little farther. Thursday will tell a lot." He went on the 15-day disabled list in May and figured he would be back by now. ... Red Sox CF Jacoby Ellsbury played his fourth straight game since coming off the DL Friday against Tampa Bay. He was sidelined since mid-April with an injured right shoulder.
