Recap

White Sox 8, Brewers 6: Dayan Viciedo drove in four runs and Alex Rios delivered the tiebreaking single in the seventh inning as Chicago rallied past visiting Milwaukee.

Gordon Beckham led off the bottom of the seventh with a base hit against Jose Veras (3-3) and stole second base. After Paul Konerko was intentionally walked with one out, Rios knocked a 0-1 pitch into center field to score Beckham. The Brewers loaded the bases in the top of the eighth before Addison Reed came on and got Corey Hart to ground into an inning-ending fielder’s choice.

Jesse Crain (2-1), the losing pitcher on Friday night, got the win after recording a pair of outs in the seventh inning. After Beckham singled home an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth, Reed pitched the ninth to pick up his ninth save.

Chicago took a one-run lead in the second inning on RBI singles by Viciedo and Aramis Ramirez, then made it 4-2 in the fourth on Viciedo’s two-run homer. After Milwaukee surged ahead with three runs in the top of the sixth, Viciedo singled in another run and scored on a game-tying double by Orlando Hudson.

Ryan Braun had an RBI single in the fourth inning to extend his hitting streak to 17 games and tie the game at 2-2.

Each starting pitcher lasted 5 1/3 innings and allowed five runs. Milwaukee’s Randy Wolf gave up eight hits and struck out four without a walk. Dylan Axelrod, filling in for the injured Philip Humber, yielded six hits and struck out three.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Beckham is 6-for-11 with a home run and five runs batted in over his last three games ... Milwaukee LF Norichika Aoki stole four bases, nearly matching his previous career total of five ... George Kottaras opened the scoring for Milwaukee with an RBI double in the second, and the Brewers also got RBI singles from Nyjer Morgan, Martin Maldonado and Cody Ransom ... Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks was hit by a pitch for the 100th time in his career ... Reed's save was his first of more than three outs.
