White Sox break out at the plate in 16-2 rout of Rangers

Posted:
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Jose Abreu and Jordan Danks each had two-run homers, Erik Johnson combined with three relievers on a two-hitter and the Chicago White Sox snapped a four-game losing streak with a 16-2 victory Sunday over the Texas Rangers, who had won five in a row.

The White Sox went ahead to stay with three unearned runs off Robbie Ross (1-1) in the fifth, including Abreu's fifth homer of the season for a 5-2 lead.

Johnson (1-1) allowed two runs and only a single over his five innings, but the right-hander walked the leadoff batter the first four innings and threw only 44 of his 87 pitches for strikes. The Rangers also scored on a wild pitch, and had another runner thrown out trying to do the same.

Ronald Belisario threw two scoreless innings before Andre Rienzo and Matt Lindstrom each worked an inning.
