White Sox Vs. Rangers Final Score: Philip Humber Leads Chicago To 5-2 Win

After struggling through much of the season, SP Philip Humber put together an impressive outing to help the Chicago White Sox (55-45) beat the Texas Rangers (58-41) in a 5-3 win Saturday night.

Humber (W, 5-5) lasted two batters into the 7th inning and held the prolific Rangers lineup to just 1 ER on a C Mike Napoli home run. Collecting 4 strikeouts and allowing only 2 walks, Humber did surrender a cycle to the collective Rangers offense -- a single, double, triple and homer -- but nothing else as he scattered all four hits through his 6+ innings of work.

DH Adam Dunn (31) and 1B Paul Konerko (17) added a home run each, but the White Sox were not able to chase Rangers SP Matt Harrison (L, 12-6) until after 7 IP of work. SS Eduardo Escobar -- in his last game with the White Sox -- went 2 for 5 with a pair of doubles.
