White Sox Vs. Athletics Final Score: Chicago Wins On Danks Walk-Off

The Oakland Athletics have had a magical run in close games since the All-Star Break, but the Chicago White Sox got the better of them on Friday night. The White Sox picked up two key runs on homers late in the game to take home a 4-3 victory over the A's.

The big blast came in the bottom of ninth, when Jordan Danks blasted a walk-off homer to right field. But that hit wouldn't have been possible without Dayan Viciedo's game-tying homer in the seventh inning. The White Sox, in fact, scored all four of their runs on solo homers: Alexei Ramirez hit one in the fourth, with A.J. Pierzynski preceding that with one of his own in the second.

White Sox starter Gavin Floyd provided a quality start, giving up three earned runs over six innings. He struck out five and walked three.
