Danks Pitches Gem In Sox Win

June 21, 2010 Updated Apr 15, 2008 at 10:13 PM EST

CHICAGO (AP) - Carlos Quentin cracked a three-run home run to
spark the Chicago White Sox to a 4-1 win over Oakland. Chicago's
John Danks blanked the Athletics for 7 2-3 innings to pick up his
first win in 12 starts. He scattered five singles, walking two and
striking out four to improve to 1-and-1.
Quentin made up for the absence of Jim Thome's bat
in line-up. The designated hitter was suspended for the game by
Major League Baseball for his arguing with an umpire after being
called out in a game against Detroit last week.
Quentin connected off of Oakland starter Dana Eveland in the
fourth inning. Joe Crede knocked in Chicago's other run
an inning later.
