CHICAGO -- John Danks is enjoying success and making it look easy with a string of impressive performances of late. Claudio Bravo Jersey . But the left-hander knows that getting to this point -- nearly two years removed from shoulder surgery -- was anything but easy. "Its been a long, frustrating road to get back to here," Danks said. "There were some days where you were having to fight doubt from creeping in. "I think Im beyond that." Gordon Beckham and Dayan Viciedo hit two-run home runs, Danks pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox snapped a four-game losing streak with an 8-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. The slumping White Sox had managed a total of six runs in their previous four games, but busted through with a slew of clutch hits. It was plenty of support for Danks (6-5), who settled down after a somewhat slow start and gave up two runs -- one earned -- and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. In his last five starts, the left-hander is 3-1 with a 1.51 ERA. His ERA for the season is down to 3.97. "He has really gotten it together, from where he started early in the year," manager Robin Ventura said. "He has pitched to where hes always giving us a chance right now. He becomes tough when he has the feel of the changeup like that and spotting his fastball. It just seems like he has a little more on it as far as spotting his fastball." Viciedo, who was just 2 for 23 on the homestand before Tuesday, went 2 for 4. His fifth-inning blast ended a stretch of 51 at-bats without an RBI. Hunter Pence went 2 for 4 with a home run for the Giants, who have dropped four straight and seven of eight. Giants starter Matt Cain (1-5) allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- and 10 hits in five innings. "He got off to a good start," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said of Cain. "Those first two innings, he looked real sharp. He looked like he was on track. Then the third inning got a little long there, long at-bat and he ended up giving up a home run. Then he just got derailed." Pence opened the scoring with a homer in the first inning, and the Giants made it 2-0 with an unearned run in the third. The White Sox tied it in the bottom of the third as Adam Eaton singled with two outs, stole second and then trotted home on Beckhams two-run shot. Chicago took a 5-2 lead with three runs in the fourth. Jose Abreu led off with a single and one out later Alexei Ramirez and Viciedo both singled to load the bases. Alejandro De Aza popped up in foul ground on the first pitch for the second out, but Tyler Flowers drew a walk to drive in a run and make it 3-2. Eaton followed with a slow grounder to shortstop that Brandon Crawford fielded cleanly but threw wide of first base after rushing to get the speedy Eaton. Eaton was credited with a single and one RBI as both Ramirez and Viciedo scored for the three-run lead. Crawford was charged with an error for allowing the second run to score and both runners (Flowers and Eaton) to advance a base. Chicago added three runs in the fifth to break the game open. Adam Dunn had an RBI single and two batters later Viciedo hit a two-run, two-out homer for an 8-2 margin. "We needed it," Beckham said. "It was nice to break out against a good team." NOTES: Bochy was a teammate of Tony Gwynns and later managed the Hall of Famer, who died Monday. "Just a huge loss for baseball and San Diego," Bochy said. "We all know what a great player he was and a great hitter. But he is getting recognized for being such a tremendous person." ... White Sox C Tyler Flowers had a bases-loaded walk to drive in a run, but is 18 for his last 111 at-bats with 50 Ks as his average dropped to .247. ... Giants OF Angel Pagan (lower back) was out of the lineup for a second straight game and is listed as day-to-day. ... C Buster Posey was used at DH after taking a foul off mask on Sunday. ... The finale of the brief two-game series has a marquee pitching matchup of RHP Tim Hudson (7-2, 1.81) vs. LHP Chris Sale (5-1. 1.97). Kevin De Bruyne Jersey . -- Desperate to stop Tom Bradys latest comeback bid, the Miami Dolphins sought help from a reserve safety making his NFL debut after being signed Tuesday off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. Sergio Aguero Jersey . Siddikur, who led on all four days and took a four-stroke lead going into the final day, bogeyed four out of six holes starting at the sixth and continued a forgettable last round in which he returned a three-over 75 to finish with a 14-under 274. . LUCIE, Fla.KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Extending his NASCAR Nationwide Series record to 69 victories was nice. Winning for the second week in a row and the sixth time this season were, too.What really mattered to Kyle Busch, though, was the chance to get some more competitive laps at Kansas Speedway going into the Sprint Cup race Sunday.Some good things happened today that I was able to pick upon, Busch said after making a late pass on Kevin Harvick and then holding on down the stretch. Just the way the car drove, and the way we were able to make different lanes work, whether it was on restarts or whether it was during the race, picking off traffic. Just things like that.Busch, also the winner last week at Dover, picked up his first Nationwide win of the year on a 1.5-mile track. Sundays race begins the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cups new elimination format.I feel like this is our biggest challenge, Busch said. I feel like if we can pass through this challenging round, then its going to be a positive for us come the next round.Harvick, who will be on the pole for Sundays race, pulled away in his Chevrolet at the final restart with 40 laps to go, but Buschs Toyota got around him with 20 to go and won by 0.767 seconds.They gave us a good opportunity with strategy there, but we just couldnt hold him, Harvick said. The 54 was quite a bit better as we got going into the run. We could hold him off for a short run, but in the end his car would maintain speed and ours would slow down.Ryan Blaney was third in a Ford after starting on the outside of the front row.Rookie Chase Elliott tightened his hold on the points lead with four races to ggo, finishing 10th after avoiding a collision with Jamie Dick shortly after the three-quarter mark in the 200-lap, 300-mile race. Custom Manchester City Jerseys. That padded his lead to 38 points.Regan Smith, who came into the race 26 points behind JR Motorsports teammate Elliott, crashed in practice Saturday morning and finished 22nd in a backup car.Paul Menard was fourth, followed by pole winner Ty Dillon, Matt Kenseth, Elliott Sadler, Trevor Bayne, Brian Scott and Elliott.Getting the pole today was a huge boost, Dillon said. Running the way we did today, having a car that was capable of me making mistakes and still coming back through the field, was a nice relief.The race was marred by nine cautions for 42 total laps, and by the midpoint of the race only 22 drivers remained on the lead lap. With 50 laps remaining, that number had dropped to 11 — and 12 drivers were out of the race.The dropouts included rookie Chris Buescher, who started third and led 20 of the first 90 laps before a collision with Kyle Larson with 110 laps remaining. Larsons car got loose and then drifted across the track into Bueschers path, the collision peeling away the right-side panels of Bueschers Ford. He went behind the wall for emergency repairs and was 49 laps down when he returned, finishing 28th and 51 laps down.But the day was roughest on Smith.Smith, who signed an extension Wednesday through 2015 with JR Motorsports, qualified 24th and then had to start at the rear after his crash in practice. He was well back in the pack when a swaybar arm fell of his car with just over 50 laps to go, forcing him behind the wall, and he finished seven laps down.
