Adam Eaton and Conor Gillaspie each went 2-for-4 with a run
scored as the White Sox halted their four-game losing streak. Adam
Dunn, Tyler Flowers and Eaton had one RBI apiece as Chicago won for
just the third time in its last 10 contests.
John Danks (6-5) gave up two runs - one earned - and five hits in 6
1/3 innings in winning his third consecutive start. Matt Cain (1-5)
gave up a season-worst eight runs - seven earned - and 10 hits in
five frames as San Francisco lost its fourth straight game.
Hunter Pence’s first-inning homer and Buster Posey’s third-inning
RBI single gave the Giants a 2-0 lead before Chicago tied it on
Beckham’s blast to left in the bottom of the third. Flowers drew a
bases-loaded walk in the fourth and Eaton drove in one with an
infield single while a second run scored when Giants shortstop
Brandon Crawford threw wildly to first.
Dunn’s RBI single to right in the fifth made it 6-2 and Viciedo sent
his blast over the wall in left later in the inning. Pablo Sandoval
and Pence each had two hits for San Francisco, which has lost seven
of its last eight games.

mask. … Flowers is 0-for-23 with 19 strikeouts over his last eight
games. … Giants CF Angel Pagan (back) missed his second straight
game as an MRI exam indicated he is dealing with inflammation.
