Recap


Alejandro De Aza's two-run single in the seventh inning capped Chicago's go-ahead rally and the White Sox rolled past the host Cleveland Indians 8-4 on Wednesday night.

Alexei Ramirez, Alex Rios and Brent Morel homered off Chad Durbin in Chicago's four-run eighth.

Mark Buehrle (12-9) rebounded from allowing a career-high 13 hits in his last start against Kansas City when he was also struck on the left biceps by a line drive. His only mistake came when Travis Hafner hit a two-run homer in the sixth that gave Cleveland a 2-1 lead.

Buehrle was pulled after the sixth and is 1 2/3 innings away from reaching 200 innings for the 11th consecutive season. The victory broke his three-game losing streak and was his second win in his last seven starts.

The White Sox scored three times off Ubaldo Jimenez (4-3) in the seventh. Morel's double tied the game and De Aza, who is 5-for-13 in the series, singled to center with two outs to put Chicago ahead.

Chicago first baseman Paul Konerko was given the day off and Cleveland shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera missed the game with a stiff back.
